When sweet little Alex Witherspoon, Roxanne Bergen’s foster child, wanders off during the opening night game of the village’s first minor league baseball team, everyone is frightened that a child molester may be on the loose. As everyone scours the town and the trailer park, searching for Alex, Lettie stumbles upon a terrible secret, one that will change everyone’s lives forever.
In this shocking four-part series, you will meet Deena Cook, a harried mother of four, Samantha Jacobs, a sex worker at the Revue, Cierra Maldonado, a cocktail waitress at an exclusive downtown club, and Lettie Robinson, a four-hundred pound housewife and mother of three darling little boys. The series gets off to a rollicking start when all the housewives attend the funeral for their dear friend, Anne Marie Whitehall, a mother of two lovely pre-teens and married to the sweetest man, suddenly kills herself with a handful of Nembutal and a bottle of Merlot. As the wives attempt to discover how--and why--Anne Marie ended her life, they will learn the dark secrets of Anne Marie's seemingly perfect life. And everyone will be the worse for it, in Ohio's grimmest, and ugliest, trailer park.
