Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A family torn apart by a criminal enterprise. A civil engineer forced into retirement by grief. An elderly school teacher whose passions have been shelved by time. A boy and mother living on the edge with an alcoholic, abusive man. A banker who refuses to look the other way when a scammer endangers a couple's home. A doubting police chief willing to believe a kernel of truth in an outlandish tale. And a poorly educated spunky girl, placed in a town of strangers, seeking safety and family. These characters find new purpose and rise together, rediscovering generosity and the meaning of being a neighbor in a small southwest Missouri town.
