Beth and Franny rescue a paralyzed seagull, a starving pelican, another with a hopelessly broken wing, and numerous other seabirds. As they begin to understand the beauty and frailty of life, they glean a new understanding of who they are, both to each other and to the world. Immersed in a foreign culture, they experience the world through the eyes of those who have entirely different economic and social realities. They learn that love, truth, and beauty are the essence of all cultures, and that these intangibles never die.
Lurette Cora Kerr beautifully renders the coming-of-age story of two young girls poised on the brink of maturity. With humor, grace, and compassion, her story portrays the deep levels with which we connect to each other and to the world around us.
In addition to writing, Lurette Cora Kerr volunteer teaches English as a Second Language. Her next novel explores another chapter in the lives of Beth and Franny. She lives in California and Baja, California, Mexico.
