Summary
"Miggy Brenneman is a wild and reckless seven-year-old with a fierce imagination ... Ellen is polite, cautious, and drawn to her friend's bright flame. While the adults around them adjust to unstable times and fractured relationships, the girls respond with increasingly dangerous play. When tragedy strikes, all the novel's characters grapple with questions of fate and individual responsibility, none more so than Miggy, who must make sense of a swiftly disappearing past and a radically transformed future"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Ever since childhood, Emma Merrill and Sophia Mason were bound by a passion for painting. Like all young best friends, they promised to never lose touch. But the girls came from different worlds, and their paths diverged when Emma went to an elite college and Sophie worked her way through state school. After a decade they've reconnected, both in a time of need. Emma has been struggling with depression since her college years, and she's lost herself under the suffocating influence of her controlling and manipulative mother. Sophie, under pressure to prepare for an upcoming gallery show, whisks the fragile Emma away to a small artist's colony in south Texas. It's a raw and beautiful landscape where wildflowers bloom, and perhaps Emma can bloom there, too. In the company of such nurturing and creative strangers, especially Josh Corlen, the openhearted manager of the commune, Emma allows herself to breathe again."--Back cover.
