and partners with Betsy, another single mom, in an effort to keep tabs on the
headstrong teenager she s suddenly found herself responsible for but despite
her best efforts, she is unable to keep Olivia from self-destruction. As Abby s
journey unfolds, she grapples with raising a grieving teenager, realizes she
didn’t know Stella as well as she thought, falls in love twice and discovers
just how far she will go to save the most precious thing in her life.
