- DescriptionWhen Lois' old life vanishes into thin air, she can't help snatching at the opportunity to come alive. There's only one fly in the ointment: Janie Gay, the feckless and spiteful mother of her wayward son's child. But as Lois takes her second chance at love, she finds herself on a collision course with a society that claims to support and protect.
