really liked it

Skyla has dealt with a lot in her life and has landed in a stable, if sometimes boring, marriage to Thomas. She doesn't have family to fall back on and doesn't necessarily warm up to Thomas'. She is a devoted mother to Nora when she meets Roxanne, mother of 5 boys who becomes her best and only friend. Thomas doesn't approve of Roxanne and Ted Bear's parenting style but simply shows Shyla his disapproval by laughing at the Bears' antics. When Nora stars school, Skyla gets a part time job at a book store and seems to blossom as her artistic side and organizational skills are put to use. She feels useful and needed. Her mother-in-law appears fairly judgmental, leading Skyla to believe her MIL turned in her friend Roxanne to child protective services. When the misunderstanding is uncovered, Roxanne is forgiving but it is harder for Skyla to accept.
