In Buffalo, New York, Patti settles into her life as an accomplished librarian where she prefers a good book to a romantic dinner, hot-fudge sundaes topped with gossip to solitary hours in front of the TV, and pursuing present goals to languishing over past losses. But when the family of a friend is plunged into the grips of tragedy, Patti chooses to walk a new path as the nanny of five children who lost their mother. The Five force Patti to face her own history of disappointment in love and abandonment by family. Their pain and struggle eventually brings truth, overcoming lies told to them all. But just as restoration and hope begin to take root in their lives, another tragedy takes from Patti. Will she once again cling to her career or people to give her life value, or will she build her life on peace and freedom found in truth.
