Storyline

Shirley Miller is a widow with three children who moves from a big city to small one. And like most widows and displaced individuals, she has a hard time making ends meet and her children are not exactly pleased with their new surroundings. Also accompanying her is her step-son, Bill. And also like most step-mother- step-son relationships, the two of them disagree on a lot of things. But she has help, the housekeeper, Charlotte, the handyman, Dutch, and Lew, a friend and possible, new man in her life. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>
