Who ARE these people anyway? If I were you, I'd go read my intro here and then start from "Zoe" on May 2nd!
Joanna liked living with Stan the man. She wasn't thrilled with sub sandwiches or with our little downtown, and she certainly resented that our little newspaper made a point of calling her “Stanley's new girlfriend” when they featured his shop's story on the front page, but she liked Stan. And for all of his gruff ways, and his determination to be hard and cool and...practical, I could tell that Stan was deeply in love with Joanna.
How the two right people so often find each other is one of life's mysteries. How Joanna willingly gave up her family in the city to move into Stan's over-the-shop apartment, is the other one.
Oh the complications! Isn't life messy enough within a single straightforward marriage without introducing ex spouses and step children and half-siblings? The men and women who rescue the broken, and form new families are heroes. But what heartache and trauma do we open ourselves up to and why?
