Lucy stole her friend Rose's 'happily ever after' because she wanted Rose's husband, Peter, and Lucy always gets what she wants. Big mistake. Rose was the ideal wife and is the ideal mother; Lucy was the perfect mistress.
Connie - good friend to both Lucy and Rose - is stuck in the middle. She listens to Lucy as she struggles to be wife, mother and career bitch with one ear and hears about Rose's pain at being a lonely single mum with the other. But Connie has troubles too: she's just got the hang of her own family life when an old flame pops up to rekindle a dangerous passion... will the whispers from the past blast out all the other noise?
All three women need more than a belief in happily ever after if they are to negotiate their way through messy modern life. Especially as there are many more twists in the tales to come...
