(the title is taken from the signature Emily Carr frequently used) is a moving study of an artist's struggle against despair and loneliness. It is also an intimate portrayal of a close friendship. To her fellow Victorians, Emily Carr was an eccentric character who kept outlandish pets, wore outlandish clothes, painted outlandish pictures, and had a very sharp tongue. Recognition of her artistic depth and vitality came slowly. But to Edythe Schleicher it was self-evident from the very beginning of their relationship."
