It is 1934. FDR is in the White House, the New Deal is in full swing, and Prohibition has finally been repealed.

To complicate things, there's a serious foul-up in Darling's telephone system-and Myra May and Violet don't have a penny for repairs. The town's party lines may have to go out of business, which would be bad news for the gossips.And it doesn't help that newspaper editor/publisher Charlie Dickens is facing a crisis of confidence in his new wife, Fannie. Or that Liz Lacy (the Dahlias' president) has to decide whether she's ready for a do-over in her ill-fated romance with Grady Alexander. And what's that secret her old friend Fremon is keeping?
