When Sophie comes home from work unexpectedly early one day and finds her husband of two years, James, in bed with another woman, she thought that was bad enough. To discover that the affair has been going on since before she was married and that both her family and her husband’s knew about it all, is the final straw.
From her safe, secure and, she thought, loving home, she is suddenly forced to leave and start all over again – alone. She begins to realise she must reinvent herself and start to meet people and make new friends if she is to fulfil her wish to have a proper family of her own.
With setbacks along the way, she finds it in her to reconcile herself with her parents, finding that everyone has a side to them she knows nothing about.
