'Both heart-breaking and heart-warming... a joy to read' Woman's Way

Lucy Murphy has a single goal in life - to give her children a brilliant future.

An unplanned pregnancy forced Lucy to abandon her own dreams, so she is determined that her twin daughter and son will seize every opportunity. When they get a chance to move to a prestigious school, all Lucy sees is the fulfilment of her every wish for them.

Loving them as fiercely as she does, Lucy is blind to the risks of taking two seventeen-year-olds away from everything familiar and dropping them into an alien world. Even when warning signs are flashing, she cannot see the dangers of pushing her vision on her children - especially her sensitive daughter - until it's almost too late.

For her family to survive, Lucy has to face up to some surprising and difficult truths - and figure out how to find herself again.
