Corinne Clark is in love with a Roman Catholic priest--she dated him on and off for seven years. If she had her way, she would marry him and work by his side. But the church requires priests to be single and celibate, and in the end her priest chose the church over the woman--a decision she thinks no man should have to make. That, she says, is one of the reasons she formed a support group for women who are, or have been, involved in relationships with men of the cloth.

Linda Tiger was describing her work in food service when she got tongue-tied. "Sorry, I am so nervous," she told the group of 18 women gathered around a table. Several spoke up to reassure her and urged her to go on. She smiled and finished. Later, some of the women offered ways that they build confidence: They dress better, read motivational books and meditate. One woman said she tapes a list of her job skills to the wall next to her bathroom mirror.

Three years and nine months have now passed since I shed some tears at a funeral, returned to the office and started to write: Once, in a happier time, Linda and I were going to make a movie. We figured it would be a TV production, something for the networks or cable. It was movie-of-the-week material, a triumphant tear-jerker about a woman in peril, the woman being Linda. Still, as we dined under the stars one warm evening in Santa Monica, we couldn't help but indulge our big-screen fantasies.
