Poppy Thompson is the self-proclaimed homeliest woman in town. Little wonder she works with animals rather than people. And Bren Price is the prim and proper minister's wife who does what her husband tells her. But lately her best isn't good enough. When Maude Rose the town outcast dies Poppy and Bren are shocked to discover that they've inherited her gawdy jewelry. And they're even more incredulous when they learn that the gems are the real thing! They women don't even know each other much less why they were chosen as Maude Rose's beneficiaries. Maybe it's because neither of them ever had a chance to find the real source of sparkle within themselves - until now.
