Caroline MacAfee is a skilled carpenter, her daughter Jamie, a talented architect and together they are the faces of Gut It!, a home renovation series on local public television. When Caroline is told the network wants her daughter to replace her as host-the day after Caroline's fifty-sixth birthday-she is devastated. Life changes overnight for Jamie, too. Just after learning of the host shift, her father and his new wife die in a car accident that orphans their two-year-old son. She is now grappling with a toddler who misses his parents, a fiance who doesn't want the child, a staggering new attraction, and a work challenge that, if botched, could undermine the future of both MacAfee Homes and Gut It! For Caroline, hosting the show is part of her identity. Facing its loss, she feels betrayed by her daughter and old in the eyes of the world. Her ex-husband's death thrusts her into the role of caregiver to his aging father. And then there's Dean, a long-time friend, whose efforts to seduce her awaken desires that have been dormant for so long that she feels foreign to herself. Who am I? Both women ask, as the blueprints they've built their lives around suddenly need revising. Their challenge comes not only in remaking themselves, but in rebuilding their relationship with each other.
