She chose what she thought was a beech tree, then discovers it is a hornbeam - very fitting, since the hornbeam flower is recommended for those who are feeling overwhelmed. Katie has a huge ordeal ahead, not least of all coping with a difficult fourteen-year-old daughter who's in denial over her mother's illness, and has joined a teenage sect calling themselves the 'Daughters of Lilith'.
