River Bend, Michigan, is the kind of small town most can't imagine leaving, but three women couldn't wait to escape. When each must return --- Linda Williams, never sure what she wants; her mother, Paula, always too sure; and Beth DeWitt, one of River Bend's only black daughters, now a mother of two who had planned to raise her own children anywhere else --- their paths collide under Beth's father's roof. As one town struggles to contain all of their love affairs and secrets, a local scandal forces Beth to confront her own devastating past.
