The Widows are very disappointed in Pastor Adam. Not only has he not set a date for his nuptials, he hasn’t even proposed. The Widows’ skills know no bounds, but even they find it difficult to plan a wedding under those circumstances. Of course, what they don’t know is Adam has proposed to Gussie, but the couple is trying to keep the engagement a secret – not easy in Butternut Creek.
Meanwhile, Adam’s sister Hannah, a doctor, has returned from a two-year trip to Kenya where she was working in refugee camps. She is staying at the parsonage until she recovers from a bout of malaria, and is having difficutly adjusting to life back in the US after the horrors she’s witnessed. Though physically weak, she becomes animated when verbally sparring with Gabe Borden, her adopted nephew Hector’s high school basketball coach. The Widows spot sparks of a different color between the two, and are soon up to their matchmaking ways once again.
