Headline: With her baby on one side and her career on the other, what's a girl to do? As maternity leave comes to an end for Heidi Elliott so does virtually everything she thought she knew. The substitute filling in for her high school Spanish classes has made a complete mess-not just with her students, but perhaps in way far more personal. Her husband has made a habit of going out of his way to help a beautiful, wealthy, thin, client and to further complicate things, an old boyfriend has moved back to the neighborhood. Fiercely independent, Heidi has never been one for group activities, much less church chats and teas. Pushed into accepting an invitation to the Wednesday night Moms Group, she finds herself in a sea of polyester, polka dots, big hair, and strong women who just might hold the lifeline she didn't think she needed.
