A bizzare incident at Rocky Bluff High School triggers Edith Harkness's retirement as a home economics teacher, and the start of her so-called golden years.
While Edith, a widow, mother, and grandmother, is a crossroads in her life, her son Bob, the manager of the family hardware store, views his mother's future as a dead end. He's ready to pack her off to Arizona or the local nursing home, and then he just might move into her house!
Then Edith meets Roy Dutton, and the last thing she ever expected happens to her. Life can begin again...but only when propelled by a powerful faith and the love and trust of one's family.
