Newcomer Lauren Jessup knows she needs to find a permanent home for her son six-year-old Billy, but travels from one low paying job to the next job. She came here because of a post card she saw, while waitressing in a dump. She is a great cook, but has no diploma so no one takes a chance on her. Billy wears a red superhero cape that he says magically protects him. At the Wharf Diner, Verna Mae hires Lauren as a part-time waitress.

As Billy and Nicky become best friends, Lauren and Nick begin to fall in love. However, she trusts no one ever since her son's father deserted them the moment she mentioned she was pregnant and he has a custody suit that means he must not allow even a whiff of scandal.
