When pillar-of-the-community Harry Stewart dies of a sudden heart attack, the whole village is devastated - except for his maligned wife Karen, the only one who really knew the abusive alcoholic he had become. Suddenly freed from her oppressive marriage, Karen is nonetheless wracked with guilt about her final argument with her husband, and sees the presence of her spoiled step-daughter, Sophia, as a suitable purgatory. Her only comfort in her grief and isolation is William, the sympathetic local vicar. As she shares her burdens, William's listening ear soon becomes a shoulder to cry on, and before long Karen realises she is falling in love. But William has a wife and young children, not to mention a parish to watch over - and be watched by.
