In Orchard, Massachusetts, Ruth Clagan is in a race against the clock—or clocks, in her case. She’s now the owner of Cog & Sprocket, the clock shop she inherited from her grandfather. She and her handyman friend Pat have renovated the shop and her apartment above. Now the time for the unveiling is near—as well as three other events. Although the shop clocks keep good time, Ruth feels she’s continually running behind.
