After the birth of her daughter and with her loving husband, Alistair, by her side, life is complete for Molly. However, following the death of her father and her mother deserting her for Spain and a husband taking more interest in his business, Molly discovers that life is not the idyllic fairy-tale she imagined.

Molly finds herself in an impossible position and after a blazing row with Alistair, she moves out returning to the farm, her childhood home. Bertie lives at the farm and his partner Lucy is suspicious of Molly’s intentions.
