Return to Jericho, a sleepy town in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia where life is anything but dull. Maddie and Syd struggle to find a new normal without their foster child, Henry Lawrence, who now is fighting his own battles after being reunited with his disabled veteran father. Henry befriends Dorothy, a young girl wrestling with her own family demons. Meanwhile, David struggles with Michael's growing passion for slinging hash in a local soul food restaurant; Lizzie Mayes and Tom Murphy come to a crossroads in their relationship; ninety year-old, Yankee-hating Azalea is hired as a beta tester for Grand Theft Auto VI; Maddie's patrician mother retires to Jericho and becomes uncomfortably attracted to a much younger man; and the irrepressible Roma Jean Freemantle struggles to pilot an unwieldy bookmobile and her growing attraction to another woman. Throughout it all, life and love in this endearing community take as many twists and turns as a winding mountain road--but hope and the human spirit glow as brilliantly as goldenrod in the autumn sun.
