Where the River Meets the Sea

March 2006

By Patti Flather



Jade and her mom Lu-Anne are finally home, back on the West Coast with a new high school, new store, new life. No more moving, running, hiding. But Lu-Anne has a beau for the first time in years. There’s a girl stranger poking round. Jade discovers a magical secret along a seemingly forgotten shorefront. Will coming home tear mother and daughter apart for good?
