Virginia Suzanne Ballard is going home to Saxapaw, North Carolina to think things through and sort things out, to have the people she loves best in the world love her back and bring her through a difficult pregnancy. While Virginia is laid up, unable to move or risk losing her baby, she is tended by three generations of marvelous women. Soothing her, loving her, advising her, entertaining her, the sorority reminds Virginia of all she has left behind, and all she would miss by leaving again. But as guilty secrets are revealed, half-hidden truths confessed, and wonderful memories and stories shared, Virginia realizes what she has always known -- there are parts of the past you can love, but you have to let go a little to leave room in your heart for what's new.
