Secrets told in the church ladies' room are supposed to stay in the ladies' room. But that doesn't mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude's funeral won't change the rest of her life. Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion; a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married life; and a mother with Alzheimer's residing in the local nursing home. She doesn't really need a crumbling old house about to fall into nothing but a pile of memories and broken knickknacks. Billy Lee Tucker, resident oddball in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, lived next door to Gert, and in her will she leaves him the funds to help Trudy remodel the old house. That's fine with Billy Lee, because he's been in love with Trudy since before they started school. And just spending time with her is something he'd never ever allowed himself to dream about. A beautiful home rises up from the old house on Broadway, and right along with it rises up a relationship. But is Trudy too scarred from what she heard in the ladies' room to see a lovely future with Billy Lee?

But all that will change once Mrs. W, CEO of Carolyn's company, drafts her to help the company with their latest clients. Carolyn is thrust into a world where she is soon the object of scorn and ridicule after initially being warmly welcomed. Problems abound as Carolyn deals with a contrarian boss, a gossipy co-worker, put upon neighbors, and a traveling overworked husband.

Sharon Treed, quiet and soft-spoken, is starting to feel 'used' by the system she works in, teaches second grade. These are the two women who befriend Carolyn Morgan Prescott as she enters her own teaching career. Blithe and self-assured until unseen complications arise; yet Carolyn Morgan Prescott keeps her own secret from them.It is the reason she started teaching, and the same reason she will leave teaching after her first year.
