Jenny has exchanged life in the fast lane for freelance journalism and being a mum. She doesn’t look back. Why would she? A broken engagement to her fiancé Dave. A falling out with her parents. And a night in a hotel room best forgotten. Life is simple now. Jenny’s little boy, Charlie, is starting school, beginning to build a life independent from her. She needs to get her own back.
Life, though, has other plans. When Charlie becomes ill, Jenny is forced to confront her past and all things she has turned from. But she will do anything for Charlie.
A contemporary story of love, tough choices and the triumph of the human heart.
