“There is a Season” – A Wild Care Novel

Check out Susanna Graham-Pye’s newly published novel, “There is a Season”, a story about a fictional Wild Care!

Over the years, Graham-Pye has worked as a journalist for local newspapers, earning national recognition for her coverage of rising energy costs on Cape Cod, first place regional awards for coverage of human services, religious issues, and feature writing. Of all of the stories she has covered, features have always been her favorites.

Graham-Pye said one story she especially enjoyed following was that of a determined Cape Codder, Karen Von den Deale, who gained a reputation for rescuing and caring for wild animals in her backyard. Soon her home was filled year-round with injured wildlife, and her successes saving lives soon gave birth to a full-fledged clinic: Wild Care, founded in 1994.

The Mighty Miracle Mouse

A distraught woman appeared at our door holding a bird feeder. A mouse was trapped in between closely spaced bars. It had somehow weaved itself through the tight spaces, and locked its body so it could not move any appendage.
