Summary, etc.:
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 her aunt 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 her get the farm running, she finds herself, for the first time in her life, part of a close circle of women friends. Each displaced from her home--a result of job loss, a romantic break up, eviction--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" explores women's strengths, family complexities, life's crises, the use of humor as a curative power, and love in all its many definitions. Jo-Ann Mapson's rich, melodic prose captures the exquisite beauty of the American West as well as the tremendous power of friendship among women.
