Synopsis

Birdee Pruitt seems to have it all. She's been married for years to her handsome highschool sweetheart, and has a brilliant and sensitive child. But when her picture perfect life comes crashing down around her--when her beloved husband dumps her on national tv--Birdee Birdee must start over. With no place else to turn, the former beauty queen, along with daughter Bernice, heads back home... to Smithville, Texas. There Birdee's life becomes even more complicated as she tries to deal with a mother she must get to really know for the first time, a daughter who desperately misses her father, and the prospect of a new romance. But as Birdee undertakes her emotionally charged journey, she begins to find strength to reclaim her life, rediscover her family and return to something she had almost given up... hope.
