Maggie is closer in age to her stepmother than her father is. He's got a heart problem and refuses to take his medication. He bursts out in anger unexpectedly, so Maggie has made the most of her August vacation by studying the Blue Heron that feeds at the marsh. As she observes the slow movements, she catches sight of and begins her careful study of Tucker, the boy across the pond whose bow and arrow she discovered on the island.
