Broke and stranded in a half-finished tract house in a swamp, Ida Overdorff discovers the strange community around her--a millionaire living in a tree house, two feral child thieves. Ida clings to her dream of returning to New York while weathering storms both meteorological and emotional, and comes to understand that nobody's luck--even hers--is all bad.
