A Day Of Signs And Wonders : Can your whole life change in a single day?<br /><br />Emily dreams of birds. She feels constrained by nearly everything - her overbearing sisters, the expectation to be a proper young lady, and even her stiff white pinafore.<br /><br />Kitty feels undone. Her heart is still grieving a tragic loss, and she doesn't want to be sent away to a boarding school so far away from home.<br /><br />When the two girls meet by chance, on a beach on the outskirts of Victoria, BC, in 1881, neither knows that their one day together will change their lives forever.<br /><br />Inspired by the childhood of acclaimed Canadian artist Emily Carr, A Day of Signs and Wonders is a sensitive and insightful look at friendship, family, and the foundations of an artist, drawn over the course of a single day - a day in which a comet appears, an artist is born and an aching hole in one girl's heart begins to heal.
