Powers and Gloria
When Edward Connell Powers suffers a stroke, he must turn over the running of his furniture factory, the town?s largest employer, to his son James. When he comes home from hospital, James hires the only caregiver he can find, Gloria Delaney, a single-mom, high school drop-out whose hair is bigger than her sense of worth. It seems a doomed relationship but little by little over Edward?s long convalescence, she wins his respect for her humour, spirit and intelligence while she sees beyond his intimidating, crusty exterior. Gloria helps him as he seeks to rebuild his strength so he can return to work, even though it will thwart his son?s global ambitions for the family business. Each boosts the other in their times of doubt and need, crossing barriers that would normally divide people from the opposite ends of the social spectrum.
