Book Description

Thirteen year old Stephanie (Stevie) loses her parents in a terrible accident, leaving her lame. Stevie’s dreams of running for Scotland are over. No longer able to cope with Stevie’s moods, Gran sends her to an aunt on a Scottish island.

Although Stevie gradually makes new friends and discovers an interest in the bird sanctuary, she soon falls into danger from two bird poachers intent on harming the eagles.
A strange boy in the hills helps Stevie. Could he have anything to do with the eagles or the painted rocks and legends of the island?

Format:Kindle Edition
Some of the greatest books available for our youth today are filled with incredible levels of inspiration, magic, and are unpretentious.

SUMMER OF THE EAGLES by Ros Gemmell shows us so many diverse layers of the intricate weave we all play in Nature's overall tapestry From the majestic beauty and wisdom of the golden eagles, to the dawning recovery of a child, stripped by a glitch in the sway of Time's Pendulum of her beloved family...this book DELIVERS.

Thank YOU, Ms. Gemmell for sharing your piece of the world with us, reminding us, no matter where we are, we all share that same serene backdrop.

SUMMER OF THE EAGLES

FIVE STARS I award this book, and a breath stoppingly appreciative

WELL DONE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriquing Tween Book September 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Summer of the Eagles is a great read for upper MG and lower YA. The characters of Stevie, David, and Sharon could be any young person. Just the right mix of mystery, danger, and excitement. The most interesting character is Karig. Readers will have to decide for themselves exactly who or what Karig is. The story also has just a hint of romance that will delight the girls. Set against a Scottish background, the story comes complete with local legends that will interest readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Majesty of Eagles April 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ros Gemmell's Summer of Eagles is, in a word, magnificent. It is a book for `tweens, I think, but I found myself turning the pages with a sheen in my eyes and a catch in my throat.
Summer works on several levels: as a metaphor for coming of age; as a story of loss and recovery; as a tale of young girl who learns about herself and other people by living through pain and by accepting love. Above all, it is a story of spiritual strength and overarching love that comes through a belief in something higher than our own limited nature.
When 13-year-old Stephanie comes to Cumbruach, a fictitious island off western Scotland, she is an emotional and physical wreck. She has just lost both parents in a car accident, and she has injured her leg so badly that she will never again run competitively. Her life has become no more than a haze of sorrow for her loss and self-pity for her own condition.
And then she meets Karig.
The character of Karig is what gives the book its majesty and warmth, its message of hope for the future. He is a benevolent spirit who will not leave Stephanie until he knows, as only a spiritual figure can know, that she is healed. At once a strange, reclusive boy and a powerful eagle-figure, Karig watches over Stevie until the end, when he sees that she is completely healed and can live once more as a happy, normal teenager.
If I had young sons or daughters, I am sure Summer of Eagles would be among the always-treasure books in their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be a tween to enjoy it April 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded Ros's book yesterday morning and by early afternoon had it completely read. You don't have to be a tween to enjoy it.

Ros's book drew me in from the beginning and kept me hooked until the end. Her style is perfect for the younger audience, yet works well for the older reader as well.

Stevie's character was realistic and her pain of losing her parents and hurt at being sent by her Gran (who Stevie lived with after the accident) to her aunt's was sympathetically portrayed.

Her depiction of the Scottish landscape's rugged beauty makes it easy to visualize it as you read.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
