Lisa McDougal is married to her high school sweetheart, Xander, and runs a very successful daycare. They've been trying to have a baby for years, and it's taking a toll on them. Deep down though, Lisa knows their bond is strong. But when she visits him at work one day, she witnesses something that turns her life upside down. With her marriage falling apart, Lisa moves in with her sister.

Rachel McDougal dotes on Lisa all the time—be it with ice-cream, movies or sisterly advice. She's lived on her own her whole adult life but having her sister at home with her is a welcome change. Things are also changing at the senior care center where she works. Her favorite patient, Violet, recently lost her son and daughter-in-law. When her nephew arrives in Bloombay to pick up the pieces, Rachel instantly takes a liking to him.
