EMMA, HANNAH AND LEONIE. Three very different women meet on holiday and become close friends. Each is at a different stage in life and has different ambitions.
Hannah – young and beautiful, wants to forget the man who betrayed her and throw herself into the excitement of the single life – but is she deceiving herself?
Emma – two years married and desperate to have a baby. But what kind of parent would she be when she still allows herself to be bullied by her own parents?
Leonie – generously proportioned and big-hearted. Can there ever be romance for her, after fast growing-up teenaged children and a divorce?
Over the next few years, as they work out their needs and desires and come to terms with their situations, their lives become inextricably entwined.
