Six Writers. Six Secrets. When the reclusive poet laureate, Portia Grey, starts a writers group, six women can't stay away. From all walks of life -- a mother, a solider, a pastor's only child, a teenager, a detective and a wizened senior -- the writers gather every week in the hundred-year-old arts center at the edge of Port Laurel. As they wait for the laureate to make her grand appearance, the secrets and lies begin to build in the elegant sitting room.
