A Year on Ladybug Farm
Their husbands were gone, their families were grown, and the future stretched out before them like an unfulfilled promise...

Over the course of a year, overwhelming obstacles make the three women question their decision, but they ultimately learn that sometimes the best things can happen when everything goes wrong...
