Gyrfalcons in the 14th century were rare and very valuable. The narrator is compelled to seek and capture them in the Arctic because royalty in Egypt holds his brother in ransom. His quest is imperiled by the One Hundred Years War, the bubonic plague, and the rival ruler of Damascus.

Nicholas of Lynn, an historic geographer, invites him on a voyage to the Arctic. Officials in Greenland try to stop the quest for falcons. The three-year quest leads them to spend a year with native people, the northernmost in the world, from whom they develop new perspectives on European society and civilization.

In the second book of the Twin Oaks Trilogy, Jessica and Jed return to their beloved farm home. At twelve years old, in On Our Own, they moved with their parents to Toronto. After only a short time, they were left to fend for themselves. Using the ‘work skills’ their grandparents had taught them as youngsters, they find a way to make their living. To achieve this, they establish a landscaping business – Yard-Boys – using their classmates as workers. With the help of their lawyer friend Thorpe Norville, the business grows and flourishes.

In Return to Twin Oaks they are sixteen and have established a reputation of being young entrepreneurs. Now old enough to return to their farm home in Birchwood, they move back to the farm house and the small town of Birchwood. At first, being alone in their grandparents’ big old home seems very strange and lonely. On their first trip into town to buy supplies, they are involved in rescuing two pups tossed out on the road by a cruel, uncaring owner. In doing so, they establish their first friendships with the Birchwood veterinarian and his assistant, Ginny. Then, while Jed is at work establishing the Birchwood branch of Yard-Boys, Jessica discovers that someone has been living in the farm house while they’ve been away and has established a way of getting into the house again. Jessica hides in the attic with the two pups, afraid that the interloper may return. A violent storm occurs while Jessica keeps watch. To her shock and surprise, a dramatic meeting takes place between Jessica and her grandmother’s ghost. Pointing the way, Grandmother Oaks sends Jessica out into the storm on a mission that will change her life forever.
