    Honey Santana, impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar, self-proclaimed "queen of lost causes", has a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales calls. She's taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie, into the wilderness of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in civility. What she doesn't know is that she's being followed by her Honey-obsessed former employer.

Women of every age, every stage and every face will relate with her "identity crisis." A crisis that is all too common in this post-modern era as women search for authentic validation. Teen girls will be particularly inspired by her struggle to live by the motto: "Beauty is as beauty does."

    Charming ladies’ man Rory Randall dies with one last trick up his sleeve: His will includes a calculating clause mandating a summer-long reunion for his daughters, all from different marriages - that is, if they hope to inherit his posh Nantucket house. Relations among the three sisters are sour thanks to long-festering jealousies, resentments, and misunderstandings. Arden, a successful television host in Boston, hasn’t been back to the island since her teenage years, when accusations of serious misbehavior led to her banishment.

    This is a heartwarming story about Leigh McKenzie, a 12-year-old city girl whose parents have decided that she will spend her summer with her Grandma Kate on the island that her Grandma calls home. However, Leigh had her summer all planned. She was going to spend it with her girlfriends, not on some old island with her Grandma! You see, it's not that Leigh doesn't love her Grandma Kate; it's just that well.... for one thing - Grandma Kate doesn't even have a T.V. or a computer.
