SummaryAdd a Summary
Lena, a former pastor's wife, had been falsely accused of embezzlement and sent to prison. This story begins at her release from the correctional center and follows her struggles to begin life anew. A new town, a new job ... it should be fairly easy to start over, right? At first it appears to be so when she meets several new friends who are willing to look beyond her past and give her a chance. The other people at the boarding house are just as down on their luck as she is and the friendships she makes there bring her heart back to life. An older lady in town has taken Lena under her wing, much to her attorney son's disliking. Her new job isn't exactly what she had expected, but she blossoms as she takes on the role of Mrs. Santa. When a former church member recognizes her and causes Lena trouble, things quickly turn disastrous.
