Nancy's life was changing, not Jeremy's. He would continue to drive to his job in the city every day, Nancy was stuck out on the dusty country road with four "towheaded wonders." She misses the sounds and scents of the city and her former neighbors. Nancy adores her toddlers. Mark the thumb sucker and Matthew who reaches for his "beeves" whenever he needs extra security; Marty, too chunky to walk, spends most of his time in the "cage" and Michael still an infant is in his basket. She also adores her husband. But, she hates country life. One day, Nancy discovers an enormous patch of straw out back behind the house. She decides when she has a free moment; she will try to learn what it is. Little does she know the journey of self-discovery that lies before her, hidden beneath the straw.
