Publisher's Summary

The healing powers of art and friendship work together in this inspiring and heartwarming novel by New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.

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.

For Sophie and Emma, it’s the perfect place for reflection and to finally share the secret burdens each has carried. Most of all it’s a chance to rediscover their true selves and to make good on the old promise that their friendship would last forever.

Humming with a great story

Once again, Carolyn Brown has created memorable characters that will stay with you for a while. The plot line might have some familiar themes, but the bonds of friendship and strong female characters keep it from being ordinary. I loved it!

Great story

Definitely a different story line than most Carolyn Brown books. A little more serious but no less enjoyable. Sweet love story. Family comes in all different forms. These friends are sisters of the heart and the little community on Hummingbird Lane is so loving and supportive. We all need this kind of family.

Family of the Heart

Wow, just wow!! Enjoyed this immensely!! Narration was perfect, in my view, because if you can forget the narrator and just hear the story while still keeping the characters apart, it's perfect. Carolyn Brown knocked it out of the park in this story about mental health, control freaks, mothers & daughters for better and for worse, friendship and healing in this "family of the heart." Spectacular!!
