Moving to San Francisco offers Kate Madison a fresh start-just what Kate and her two daughters need after her firefighter husband's tragic death. A move out of Oklahoma City's tornado zone and snakes andwait. Earthquakes? San Francisco has earthquakes! Kate arrives to find not earthquakes but friends ready to help, from fun-loving neighbor Mazi to Lee, the advice-giving mailman. Maybe Lee's tips can help Kate with her mother-in-law, whose agenda seems to be less to support Kate than to take over. Then Kate discovers Mazi has a painful secret and forgets her own troubles as she takes on her friend's. An ounce of prevention may be worth a pound of cure, but Kate learns that friendship, family and faith are worth much, much more.
