WIDOWS OF DANFORD
Three elderly widows, a group of senior citizens, a family gathered for a birthday party, and a charming young woman named Letty Vanesse all come together in a raucous, delightful, way that is an answer to prayer. At the center of it all is O’Malley House, a sprawling Victorian mansion in Danford, Montana, that holds all the answers for happiness and fulfillment, restoration and hope.
When young Letty organizes a group of elderly seniors and they converge on the house to fix and repair and catalogue the priceless contents, lives change. And when mansion-owner Katherine O’Malley impulsively offers to hold an extravagant birthday party at the mansion it brings a family back together and is the catalyst groundskeeper Simeon Quest needs to choose love.
