Description - Bad Girl Creek by Jo-Ann Mapson
From the critically acclaimed author the Los Angeles Times calls "one of the most gifted writers of the contemporary urban west" comes this national bestseller, a bittersweet novel about a circle of friends, women will take into their hearts. Phoebe DeThomas, thirty-eight and confined to a wheelchair, has always led life as a spectator, in awe of her beloved Aunt Sadie and overshadowed by her brother James, a financial wizard. But when Sadie dies and leaves Phoebe a flower farm, Phoebe's world begins to blossom for the first time. She takes in three women who have suffered losses of their own, a romantic break-up, a lost job, an eviction - and together they get the farm up and running. The bonds they form as they nurture the land gradually heal their hearts and help them make life-changing decisions. BAD GIRL CREEK is the tender, deeply moving story of their brief idyll. By exploring the women's strengths and needs and the complexities of families and friendships, Jo-Ann Mapson takes familiar themes and treats them with humour and sensitivity.
