Newly widowed Charlotte Figg purchases a double-wide trailer sight unseen and moves to the Paradise Trailer Park with her dog, Lucky. Unfortunately, neither the trailer nor Paradise are what Charlotte expected. Her trailer is a ramshackle old place in need of major repair, and the people of Paradise are harboring more secrets than Bayer has aspirin.
Charlotte's new friend, Rose Tattoo, learns that Charlotte played softball and convinces her to rally the women of Paradise into a team. Reluctant at first, Charlotte warms to the notion and is soon coaching the Paradise Angels. Meanwhile, Charlotte discovers that the manager of Paradise, Fergus Wrinkel, abuses his wife, Suzy. Charlotte sets out to find a way to save Suzy from Fergus and in the process comes to a difficult realization about her own painful marriage.

"unlikely story and so very engaging"
At times I found the premise a bit flakey but overall I liked the way this ragtag group pulled together to have a "winning season." A bit too much evangelical zeal for my tastes.
Would have enjoyed the book a lot more with a better narrator. It was a little weak as redemption stories go but I guess finding your way home isn't always pretty.
