It’s been seventeen years since Karen Smith escaped her abusive marriage to Clyde King. Determined to help other victims of domestic violence, Karen is now the mother and manager of The Love House, a transitional shelter for battered women.
Melissa, Katrina, Barbra, and Tabitha all have one thing in common, they are all running away from abusive men and are residing in The Love House.
Melissa is a heroin addict and prostitute from Los Angeles, California. Katrina is a nurse and entrepreneur from Chicago, Illinois, Tabitha is a nineteen year old high school drop out from Atlanta, Georgia, and Barbra is a pregnant telephone operator from Cleveland, Ohio. Life in The Love house is not always easy for these four ladies from different walks of life as they try to learn to live together under the same roof.
Karen strives to help these four women transform their lives from victims to survivors while at the same time trying to maintain her own home and keep her wild and rebellious sixteen year old daughter from following in her dead cousin’s footsteps. Unfortunately, Karen soon learns that no matter how hard she tries, it’s impossible to save everyone!
