When Louisa Atherton's wealthy husband drops dead in the arms of another woman she thinks things can't get any worse - until she discovers that he has left her bankrupt and homeless.
Now stuck in Rainbow's End, Louisa is depressed at having to sell her clothes at a garage sale and search for unskilled work.
Marty begins to renovate the shack, but delays occur and expenses mount. When Louisa can't pay Marty, her builders walk off the job leaving her with a half-finished house.
When a storm blows off their shoddy new roof, Louisa finally finds the nerve to sack Marty. Holly decides that she's ready to let her father go, and the family finally scatter his ashes.
An exhausted Louisa is juggling her cleaning and photography jobs with heavy labour, as she struggles to finish the shack by herself.
Louisa is about to start a new phase of her life. The shack is for sale, the minute it's sold Louisa is moving on. But a surprise discovery makes one more remarkable twist in her story.
