Generations of the Heart : After Darlene Kindalia's boyfriend hits the road in her Camaro, she packs up her daughter Tiffany and moves in with her mother, hairdresser extraordinaire for the country spa called The Ladies Farm.

And so from the start, Darlene decides to never tell Rita about agreeing to become a surrogate mother for rich, good-looking Ryan Plummer, M.D., and his wife. But Darlene's unusual pregnancy will have an unexpected impact on Kat, business manager of The Ladies Farm, who's struggling with a heartbreaking secret - and the bed-and-breakfast itself, which needs a new gimmick to attract guests.
