Poppy believes she’s a nobody without Meagan, her best friend since childhood.
They’re college roommates, majoring in fine art with high aspirations of becoming successful artists. But Poppy’s world shatters when she’s suspended one semester before graduating. Her controlling father, Pastor Wayne, sends her away to live in her mother’s abandoned, soon to be condemned, homeplace while it’s being repaired. The same homeplace he’s forbidden his wife to visit, except for funerals, since they’ve been married.
Alone in a new town, in the rural mountains of North Carolina, Poppy struggles to begin again. She convinces her reserved mother to share stories about her family’s past. She visits a nearby art gallery and develops a schoolgirl crush on the owner. She attends a local watercolor class, makes new artist friends and is dismayed by the instructor. She tells no one of her reoccurring dreams, but with the help of Liam, the town handyman, she begins to face issues leading to her own healing.
Will Poppy have the courage to stop living in Meagan’s shadow, develop her own beliefs and accept her true muse hidden away in long-buried family secrets?
