Midnight, Texas, (pop. 3,604) was the last place Dinah Reynolds wanted to end up, having long ago shaken its dust from her feet and bonded with the sanity, privacy, and freeways of nearby Dallas. But when her father dies she's drawn back home, to fill his shoes temporarily as the editor of the 'Citizen,' slogan: "Midnight, the Town Where Texas Still is."
Now Dinah's dutifully publishing Midnight's weekly dose of obituaries, classifieds, the "Yard of the Week" winner, and news of who from out of town visited relatives on Sunday -- while her husband falls in love with a blond telecommunications executive. And when a silver Cessna carrying a religious pop singer crashes in Midnight, bringing with it a national media bonanza and Bobby Joe--Dinah's long-lost old flame--her future is forever changed.
