Helen Decatur spent a lifetime setting goalsâ€”getting through
college and law school, opening her own practice, becoming
financially secure and establishing herself as one of the
most highly respected matrimonial attorneys in the state of
South Carolina. Achieving those goals was a breeze compared
to the one she's faced with now.
The most drivenâ€”and cynicalâ€”of the Sweet Magnolias, Helen is
forty-two, single and suddenly ready for the family she's
put on the back burner for all these years. Unfortunately,
having a child at her age comes with lots of complications,
not the least of which is the absence of a serious
relationship in her life.
But Helen's not the type of woman to wait around for fate to
step in. Taking charge of her own destiny puts her at odds
with her two best friends, sets sparks flying with a man who
doesn't want a family, and leads her straight into the most
unexpected complication of allâ€¦love.
