Newly divorced with no real job skills to speak of, Natalie Renfro sets off to find her purpose in life. She falls into a job working for a buttoned-up attorney who tasks her with the job of moving his client, Vivian, out of her childhood home and into a new house. With the help of a quirky realtor, she discovers secrets long-buried under lifetimes of trash and treasure. Can Natalie teach Vivian to change her ways, or will Vivian teach her that some things are better left alone? A coming-of-middle-age novel about friendship, mental illness, acceptance, and love.

Recently divorced and living in a winter rental, Natalie Renfro discovers being a stay-at-home mom has left her with few options for a job. When she's offered a project by an old attorney friend of her brother-in-law, she jumps at the chance to prove herself. She soon learns that the job is to move his client, Vivian, a hoarder, out of her childhood home and into another. She enlists the help of an inexperienced realtor, Russell, who has issues and secrets of his own. Together they uncover more than either of them ever bargained for.
