Chris Bedham is 26, single with no plans for marriage and children and she likes it that way. Her sister Helen two years older has had the dream shattered. Married to her childhood sweetheart at 22, straight out of college, Helen and her husband Daniel went on to have two kids pretty much straight away. Everything seemed perfect, they were the perfect couple. Until Daniel walked out on her, he was having an affair with her best friend Maree. For the last two years, Chris and Helen have barely spoken.
Chris is at work with her job as a travel agent when a call comes in from the Department of Children’s Service. An emergency phone call turns her entire world upside down. How does she now cope with two kids under 6 and the death of her only sibling?
