When her husband dies unexpectedly, a high society woman is forced to give up her lavish estate, and plots to sell the rural Georgia abode that she still owns the title to, but is currently being used as a Foster home. Ester Hobbes' life of luxury was a transparent fallacy, a hard truth that she isn't quite ready to accept upon discovering that her late husband died without a dollar to his name. Instantaneously rendered homeless and penniless, Ester begins drawing up plans to sell the one asset she still possesses - a weather beaten Georgia home that's currently housing a handful of unwanted adolescents. At first Ester's interactions with the kids and their two kindly foster parents are far from amicable, though in time connections are forged that render their relationships more familial than adversarial. Eventually, the fallen society woman discovers that faith and prayer provides her with a much greater purpose in life than the almighty dollar ever did.
