In 1964 eleven-year-old Georgia lives with her grandparents, Paw Paw and Gramma, on the edge of the Blackfeet Reservation. That spring it rains and rains, and one afternoon the creek behind their house suddenly becomes a wall of water, washing away everything the family owns – their house, their barn and even Daisy, the only stuffed animal Georgia has ever had. Through sheer determination, Georgia and her grandparents gradually rebuild their lives, but it is when Georgia finds Sky – a foal that somehow survived the flood – that the family begins to find meaning again despite their losses.
