Holly is a stressed-out mom. I can relate to that. She & her husband separated about 2 years ago, after years when their youngest son was desperately ill, Holly spent much of her time with him in the hospital, Jack worked overtime and still couldn't keep up with medical bills. Now, moved back to her hometown, she and Jack are getting divorced and their oldest teenaged child is not coping well.
Some situations are a little far-fetched, but the depiction of this stressed mother, who is so strong in taking charge and dealing as best she can, is so vivid that a few minor details are easily glided over (e.g. why didn't she get the drive-in to pay for replacing her car that was destroyed in their fire?)

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451220552, Paperback)

Single mom Annie Hillman has been coping with trouble for so long, she's just getting through the days, when the local newspaper carries an ad featuring a picture of a young Annie on the front page, with an earnest message of love and regret from an unknown admirer. The paper's editor refuses to name names, but the ads continue to appear. And when the story breaks, Annie finds herself in the national spotlight.

Now, for the first time in years, Annie is beginning to see that joy might be possible even in the midst of hard times-and that the life she's led, along with the people she's loved, might still show her the way.
