Bad Girl Creek




Picked this one up in the bargain basket at Chapters - like most of my books.  I was pleasantly surprised.  The premise of the story is that a woman's aunt dies and leaves her her farm, except the woman, Phoebe, is wheelchair bound.  As luck would have it, she takes in an absolute stranger, a woman ferrier, who is desperately in need of a place to stay.  Thinking that she's on to something, she takes in two other women, both looking for a place to live, all coming from similar, hard-luck circumstances.  The four form a most likely friendship that only happens among a band of misfits.

And, of course, the four women make the farm a go, despite the set backs that make for a good story.  And, of course, the four women find love - filial, friendship, romantic - despite the set backs that make for a good story.  It's a triumphant story, one that cheers your spirit when you need it most.  It makes you believe that there is goodness in the world.

Enjoy!
