Better With You Here

Better With You Here

Some friends help us heal . . .

If you ask her, Natasha Davila will tell you there’s nothing more important to her than her kids. She’ll do anything for her son and daughter-even play nice with her ex-husband. Only now she’s facing a problem she never expected: her ex is re-marrying and suing for full custody. She could fall to pieces . . . or she could call on her friends.

Some help us change . . .

There’s Sara, whose tough talk hides a soft-and loyal-heart, and Haley, who has so much more to offer than a pretty face. When they’re together, Natasha doesn’t have to be someone’s wife or someone’s mother. She can just be.

And some remind us what true friendship is really about . . .

When Natasha’s ex ups the ante and exposes some disturbing news about her friends, she’s forced to cut ties. But can she really walk away from the women who have been standing by her side?
