Percy Talbot has just been released from a five year prison sentence for manslaughter. She is trying to find a place for a fresh start, and based on a page from an old travel book, travels to the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. The local sheriff, Joe Sutter, who is also Percy’s parole officer, finds her a job at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill – the only eatery in this struggling town. Percy soon meets other townspeople namely Shelby, the sweet spirit who befriends her, Shelby’s bitter husband Caleb, and Effy, the town busy-body who know little of Percy’s past.
