by Peggy A. Howard Deceit,lies,secrets,promises and death are a part of the everyday lives of the gals on Oak Street. Every emotion,touched by the stress of living, is why the women cling to each other as they solve their problems or erase their guilt. Happiness slides by the inch as they pull closer to overcome their obstacles and misfortunes. The very glue that connects them may tatter and shred when one, found to be an intruder, means to cause harm. Who will become the victor in this game of madness?
