The Underside of Joy (2012)

Three years ago Ella's life changed when she passed through a small northern Californian town called Elbow. She met Joe and became stepmum to his two young children, Annie and Zach. But when Joe drowns, his ex-wife Paige turns up at the funeral, with plans to reclaim the children that she abandoned years earlier and take them to live with her in Las Vegas. As Ella works to save Joe's family business, she has to prove that the children are best left with the only mother they've known. But maybe Joe hasn't been completely honest with her. This is a poignant and beautifully written story about the sacrifices mothers make in a custody battle with a difference.
