Summary
When Elizabeth Mooney escaped the shame of her white trash family to marry Howell Whittington, she never dreamed that thirty years later she'd end up in a loveless marriage to the cruel banker who is foreclosing on all of her friends. Then Howe has a stroke in church, and when he wakes up six months later he's a changed man. Transformed, Howe wants to be a real husband--and that scares prim, proper, repressed Elizabeth to death. And to right past wrongs, Howe blackmails the town's bad guys into doing the right things. The roller-coaster ride awakens Elizabeth and her marriage--amd the whole town and its hidebound institutions
Summary
Cruel, small-town banker Howell Whittington has a stroke sitting up in church, and when he wakes up, he's transformed and wants nothing more than to be a real husband, which scares his proper, repressed wife Elizabeth to death. Setting out to right past wrongs, he blackmails the town's baddies into doing the right thing by threatening to foreclose on their mortgages. A hilarious story of marriage and love and second chances
