Yes, Lauren has everything she considers important. She is smugly prepared for any eventuality in dealing with these country people so Lauren isn’t surprised when the hot water isn’t working at the old house. No problem. She simply looks in the phone book and calls the local plumber.

John and Melanie Giamo think of themselves as an average family, married with three teenage children. Childhood sweethearts, they’ve lived all their lives in the quiet Vermont village of Clark’s Corner, where John is chief of police and Melanie publishes a small local newspaper. Their lives seem routine enough, even mundane.

Their mutual attraction could destroy the marriage she always assumed was impervious to any outside threat.

Keeping The Peace is the story of an average family suddenly faced with extraordinary circumstances they could never have imagined. It is the portrait of an exceptional marriage and the strength of the love at its core.
