Cleo Alyssum has a plan: stay sober, keep her job, and bite her tongue until Social Services relents and returns her little boy.
Then Jared McCloud, a celebrated cartoonist and bull-headed extrovert, shatters Cleo’s carefully constructed serenity by demanding that they help their drug-dealing neighbor’s neglected children.
Cleo knows Jared is right.
Risking everything they thought they wanted, the pair join forces to save the children and face a new realization: there’s more to life and love than either of them ever planned or dreamed.
