Staff Reviews

A mesmerizing novelization of Florida icon-activist Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ early years, showing us her spunk and brilliance in the face of tough challenges, and her evolving drive and independence that fueled her unwavering commitment to the wilds of the Everglades. Set in turn-of-the-century Florida, primarily (which I loved, as a Floridian!), McMullen’s writing is superb! A shining first novel!

— Cathy


Famous late in life as a champion of the Florida Everglades, Marjory Stoneman Douglas was a woman whose passion was forged from the pain, sacrifice, and mistakes of her early years-a heroine whose story will resonate with anyone who has found strength and meaning in unexpected places.
