It’s been ten years since make-up artist Elizabeth Monroe discovered that she was adopted. She has spent her twenties trying and failing to find her real mother. Trusting no-one with her secret, it has been a lonely search on her own.
Her hunt has finally led Elizabeth to Grove village. Getting involved with the local amateur dramatic society was not part of Elizabeth’s plan. But famous theatre director Jack Andrews appears to hold the key to her mystery and if she keeps close to the villagers she might be able to finally meet her real mother.
Unfortunately the production of The Wizard of Oz is a mess. Dorothy’s hormones are menopausal, the TinMan is Elizabeth’s badly behaved ex-boyfriend and the Wicked Witch of the West has a huge secret. It’s up to Elizabeth to take control of the musical to ensure it’s a hit for all the right reasons. Maybe some of her new friends will help, if she can learn to trust them. And just maybe, amongst the cast of undertakers, farmers and florists, a true star lies in the wings.
But perhaps what Elizabeth seeks isn’t what she really needs? Perhaps it will take a group of strangers to show her the path to true happiness once more. All Elizabeth knows is that she has to find a way to let go of the past in order to look forward to the future.
Perhaps all of her answers lie Over The Rainbow.
