Pamela Lord is no stranger to the North Country. Her first view of the Presidentials came from over her father’s shoulder where she’d been tucked into a makeshift backpack.
She was three months old.
Although she doesn’t remember that hike, it was her introduction to a lifestyle that she continues to enjoy and has passed on to her own children and grandchildren.
Her late father, a long time New Hampshire Forest Service employee and avid sportsman, often took her hiking in the White Mountains to scout game. Stressing her need to remain observant, he liked to take her to the top of a mountain and let her set the course for home. Whenever a correction was needed, it was always accompanied by a snippet of wisdom that would serve her well for future treks through the wilderness.
It was memories of their great adventures that served as inspiration for LOON COVE, a tale from the 45th Parallel.
Set in the North Country of New Hampshire, LOON COVE is the tale of Audrey Douglas, a young widow who must face the heart wrenching decision of whether to sell or keep their cabin located on the shores of Loon Cove in the town of Windy Hill. While en route to the cabin, a bull moose meanders into her path, sending her SUV careening over an embankment. Only the efforts of astute Fish and Game officer Ben Tanner stand between her and certain disaster.
