Rule of Thumb

Wedding Coordinator Belle Saint James is in somewhat of a difficult social situation.

The mother of the bride, her old friend Margo, is in the toilet crying, and won’t come out!  At first, Belle tries to soothe her old friend but it becomes apparent that Margo has very good reasons for not wanting to go home.

How far does Belle have to go to protect her old friend, and how much will her involvement cost her business and her own well-being?  

Belle finds herself jolted out of her ignorance and suddenly made aware of a subterranean world of domestic violence and abuse which bobs along in secrecy just beneath the surface of everyday life.   Does she return to her comfortable life or will she use her resources and those of her friends to try to help other women and children caught up in the cycle of domestic violence?
