And when Sarah's dearest friend Abigail suddenly marries George and starts a family with him, Sarah knows there is no going back. At thirty-five, she is starting from scratch again. Can Sarah make a go of her new business enterprise and forge a meaningful life for herself as the Queen of Ice Cream?
