JANE WENHAM-JONES INTERVIEW
Single mother Sarah needs a home for her children and Claire is fulfilling her business ambitions. For Gaynor – who already has money, looks, a beautiful home in the picturesque seaside town of Broadstairs, and a generous, successful husband in Victor – it’s just one more amusement. Or is it?
While Sarah longs for love and Claire is consumed by making money, Gaynor wants answers. Why is Victor behaving strangely and who does he see on his frequent trips away? What’s behind the threatening phone calls?
As the bar takes off, Gaynor’s life starts to fall apart. Into her turmoil comes Sam – strong and silent with a hidden past – offering an unlikely friendship and maybe more. As Gaynor’s confusion grows, events unfold that will change all of their lives for ever…
