The main character, Clara Purdy, has lived a simple, quiet life, having nursed both of her parents through terminal illnesses. Following a car accident, she opens her home and her heart to the Gages, the homeless family in the other car.
As she becomes more entangled in their haphazard lives, Clara begins to experience the joys and trials of everyday life, surrounded by people who need and depend on her.
