Having twins at twenty-one changed Lucy Murphy’s life forever. Putting aside her dreams of being a lawyer, she devoted her life to bringing up her children, even though it meant choosing them over the man she loved.

Now, as a proud mother to two smart 17-year-olds, Lucy has put her past behind her and is determined they will study hard and have all the opportunities she missed out on. But what if her dreams for her children aren’t what they really want? Could Lucy be pushing the children, for whom she gave up everything, to their breaking points?

As her sensitive daughter Kelly struggles to cope, Lucy fails to notice. And when Kelly seems to be heading towards tragedy, the whole family has to face up to some difficult home truths.

Lucy is desperately trying to keep her family together when someone from her past comes unexpectedly back into her life. Can she finally open up about her past and can her family survive the truth?
