Clare Hatfield came to the small town of Kerry, Georgia, to get away from her overprotective mother and the heartbreaking memories of the husband and child she lost in a tragic auto accident. She’s built a good life here, has started dating Chief Park Ranger Roy Driscoll, and enjoys her job as a pediatric nurse. But in the wake of a fierce storm, Driscoll finds a toddler, bruised and suffering from hypothermia, at the base of Kerry Mountain.

This is the second child to appear unclaimed at the mountain in twenty years, and ordinary logic cannot explain either occurrence. Clare takes the child into her care, and when no one claims the toddler or even appears to be looking for the girl, Clare knows something is afoot. She’s already grown to love the girl as her own and vows to solve the mystery of the girl’s appearance. Driscoll and the local sheriff continue their investigation into the child’s appearance only to run into constant dead ends. Determined to uncover the truth, Clare embarks on her own investigation where she soon stumbles upon a maze of secrecy that could very well result in tragedy.

Emotionally compelling, Child of the Mountain weaves the threads of the past with those of the present, creating a bittersweet story of love and life.
