Little Flory is a Night Fairy, but her wings are broken after an attack by a bat who mistook her for a moth. She can't fly until they're healed, and decides to live in the daylight, even though the light hurts her eyes and skin. 
No bigger than an acorn, Flory has to adapt to the rhythms of the day, and get along with the forest creatures who live in the light. She makes a home in a cherry tree, inside the birdhouse of a wren, and learns how to find food and make allies.
