Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the acclaimed author of The Wilder Sisters comes this bittersweet, deeply moving story of four displaced women who unite to run a flower farm, heal their hearts, and real- ize the depth and necessity of friendship.

Phoebe Thomas has lived life as a spectator, confined to a wheelchair, in awe of her beloved Aunt Sadie and overshadowed by her financial wizard brother, James. But when Sadie dies, leaving her a flower farm, the world opens up to Phoebe in ways she could never have imagined. Taking in three roommates to help get the farm running, she finds herself, for the first time in her life, part of a close circle of woman friends. Each displaced from her home, these four women form an invaluable bond as they help one another learn to change their lives.

Set against the gorgeous backdrop of California's central coast, "Bad Girl Creek" is the inspiring story of how friendship and purpose can transform even the most compromised of women, as well as situations. With her rich, melodic prose and charming wit, Jo-Ann Mapson enchantingly chronicles female strength, family complexities, life crises, the use of humor as a curative power, and love in all its many aspects. "Bad Girl Creek" is a breathless and pitch-perfect tragicomedy of female friendship in the new American West.

Synopsis:

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.
