Meredith Larsson, small town Montana prairie girl, was doing just fine, well, okay at least, with her fun-loving, just wanna be a friend mom. That is, until her mom married drunken, abusive Raymond, when Meredith was still a kid. With a pair of role models like that, it’s a miracle Meredith survived, but she did, and then some. But not without the help, love and support of a circle of friends; young and old, woman and man, she met along the way. Also, not without the wonder and joy of being a mother to her own child, and reuniting with the man of her dreams she feared she had lost forever.
