Abby Amsted is a widow who frequently visits her deceased husband, Charlie.  She talks to him and God in the cemetery.  Abby is a busy woman working full time, exercising frequently, attending church twice a week, and playing cards on the weekend.  Abby is lonely.  She wants to marry again, but is afraid to lose another husband.

Abby meets Castell in the grocery store as he is stocking shelves.  Castell has loved Abby since high school which was over 35 years ago.  Abby is infatuated with Castell, but later finds out he is a womanizer and married to Karen.  Abby needs to get out of this relationship and has difficulty achieving the goal.  With the help of Abraham, Abby is freed from Castell and able to seek a different partner.

Abby still wants to find a husband, so she decides to join a co-ed exercise club.  During her tour of the facility, she meets Danny who has also lost a wife to death.  Abby and Danny immediately bond and become friends.  They date and begin living together.  Later Abby discovers she has a serious illness.  Now Danny faces the fact that he might lose Abby too.


Nancy Price was employed as a medical technologist for forty years.  She has retired from drawing blood samples, looking under a microscope and crossmatching units of blood for surgical procedures.  She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband where retirement has given her the time to pursue her hobbies one of which is breeding the iris – the Rainbow flower.  She will miss the fast pace and excitement of the laboratory, but delights in seeing a new iris in her seedling patch.
