A girl emerges from the woods, starved, ill, and alone…and
Suzanne Blakemore hurtles along the Blue Ridge Parkway, away
from her overscheduled and completely normal life, and
encounters the girl. As Suzanne rushes her to the hospital,
she never imagines how the encounter will change her—a
change she both fears and desperately needs.
Suzanne has the perfect house, a successful husband, and a
thriving family. But beneath the veneer of an ideal life,
her daughter is rebelling, her son is withdrawing, her
husband is oblivious to it all, and Suzanne is increasingly
unsure of her place in the world. After her discovery of the
ethereal sixteen-year-old who has never experienced
civilization, Suzanne is compelled to invite Iris into her
family’s life and all its apparent privileges.
But Iris has an independence, a love of solitude, and a
discomfort with materialism that contrasts with everything
the Blakemores stand for—qualities that awaken in Suzanne
first a fascination, then a longing. Now Suzanne can’t help
but wonder: Is she destined to save Iris, or is Iris the one
who will save her?
