A Romance

Finished March 29
The Edge of Winter by Luanne Rice
Mickey Halloran lives near the beach in Rhode Island, with her mother Neve, and loves the nearby wildlife sanctuary. She is particularly taken by a sight of a snowy owl. Her best friend, Jenna, is started to be interested in a boyfriend and is growing away from her. Her father, Richard, is having issues of his own and has stopped paying child support.
When Mickey meets Shane West, they discover a common love of wildlife. Shane also lives with his mother as his father died when he was a toddler.
The local ranger, Tim O'Casey, loves the wildlife refuge he works to protect. His estranged father, Joe, helps injured birds recover.
Together, the characters come together to fight for the protection of the refuge and the World War II German submarine sunk off its coast.
Interesting situations, with good character growth.
