As Seen Through My Specs

Joe Harris rolls back in to town after many years away.  Small towns have incredibly long memories, steel traps rusted shut.  All so many of them see is his troubled past, and not his years of military service and the growing up he’s done while he’s been away.  He comes back to redeem himself, to be near family and to start a business.  He’s become the local mechanic.

Beth Murphy hears he’s back in town and has appointed herself a one woman welcoming committee.  She shows him nothing but kindness, bringing him baked good, showing up, having lunch, spending time, showing she could care less about what people think of him, people in Petal never thought much of the Murphy’s.

Polly Chase, town maven, and mother in law to one of Beth’s sisters, Tate, won’t let people talk down about them, she’s adopted every Murphy and then some. Beth, Tate and their sister worth together in their family owned and operated hair salon.  Beth’s sisters, and the rest of the Chases and Murphys have her back.  If she wants Joe, they’ll help her do what it takes to help her convince him he’s worthy of love and no one, least of all Beth care what the town thought of him then, or now.

Can he let go and let himself be loved?
