Molly and Hannah have just lost their mother, and while Dad "figures things out," they're sent to stay with their grandparents in a quiet country town. They're not sure when, or even if, their dad is coming back for them.

But everything starts to change when Molly comes to the rescue of an injured man. There's something magical about him; he can make a flower blossom in the palm of his hand, or a sapling grow in the dead of winter. Molly desperately wants to figure out who he is and just how much power he has. Because if he can make the trees come alive again, maybe there's still hope for Molly's mother...
