Summary :

To everything there is a season - and for ten-year-old Hugh Baudoum it was the season of his childhood - a time for innocence, and the loving closeness he shared with his grandfather, "Da"... for the hours they spent together with their beloved birds, a flock of pedigreed homing pigeons watching them fly through the sky, racing towards home.

And the special thoughts and responsibilities Da passed on to Hugh...and for Dickens, Hugh's own bird, his first, and the pride of the flock.

But when Dickens at last is ready to fly in his first race, when the birds are released 600 miles from home, fate intervenes, changing forever both the lives of Da and Dickens. And young Hugh must become a man and fathom the lessons of life and death...and the meaning of love and home.
