Since Joyce Mitchell was widowed five years ago, she's kept herself occupied by running the Sewing Circus, an all-girl group she founded to provide badly needed services to young women at risk, many of whom are single mothers. But some nights, home alone, she has to admit that something is missing. And soon she may not even have the Sewing Circus to fill up her life, as the state legislature has decided not to fund the group. Feeling defeated and pessimistic, Joyce reluctantly agrees to dinner at the home of her best friend, Sister, and finds not only a perfect meal but a tall, dark stranger named Nate Anderson. His unexpected presence touches a chord in Joyce that she thought her heart had forgotten how to play. Suddenly, Joyce feels ready to grab a sexy red dress and the life that goes with it . . . if she can keep her girls safe from the forcesauseless boyfriends and government agenciesaalike against them.I cana#39;t believe I actually took a class in saying what you dona#39;t really mean so you can get money they dona#39;t really want you to have. The instructors kept telling me the key to raising money was to maintain a abusinesslike tone, a like Ia#39;m supposed to be ... As a true sixties voodoo child I know I am required to bring passion to the table just like this generation is required to bring technology and rap music.
