Haiku summary

I have a theory...' Alice Day's theory has led to five strangers meeting in a bar to take part in her experiment. But can this one time bestselling author, now a mother and housewife, follow through and change their lives for the better (and perhaps her own as well)? The strangers are a working mother stretched to breaking point, a childless woman whose only solace is fashion, a divorced father, a teacher who hates her job but loves a married man and a widow in her sixties hiding a painful secret.
