Here's the blurb:

35-year old Chloe Davis Michaels has it all: a great job as a partner in a boutique publicity firm in Los Angeles, a handsome new husband, and a baby on the way. But no matter how things look from the outside, the reality of Chloe’s gilded life is far from perfect. Her husband has a violent streak that terrifies her, and she knows that the only way to protect her unborn child is to leave. And so with $23.11 to her name, Chloe seeks refuge in the loving arms of her Midwestern family, and returns to St. Louis to “get prayed up” and figure out her next move.

But Chloe is not the only woman in her family who is going through a crisis. And as secrets are revealed and the bonds of family are tested, the Davis women are forced to finally be honest with each other–and with themselves–in order to weather the storm.

By turns humorous and emotional, hopeful, honest, and poignant, Wildflowers is beautifully written novel that explores the complexity of the love between mothers and daughters.
