Maggie moves from home into an apartment over the newspaper/print shop where she works. It's an understatement to say her mother, Beulah, is not pleased.

Those characters you know, and hopefully love, from Healing Love are all in the book which begins before Healing Love ends. No, we don't learn what happens to Cyrus, but I'm considering a short story to wrap up that lose end.
