And in the southern NSW town of Prospect, four ladies bereft of men have problems that threaten to overwhelm them.

Pearl McCleary, Adelaide's new housekeeper, must find her missing fiance.. before it's too late and someone dies. Thank God these desperate ladies have a solution- a part-time husband who will rescue them all. To find him, they'll advertise. To afford him, they'll share ...
