Description: The rural landscape entwines around the lives of two passionate yet very different women, as the challenges they face as adults threaten to dissolve the bonds they forged as youngsters, and destroy the beliefs that had brought them up out of lonely childhood. Only in the acceptance of reality, which threatens to result in the rejection of nearly everything they had believed in the past, can Sophie and Phoebe forge a way ahead for themselves and those they love. In so doing, they find each has an unknown strength that will be summoned for their greatest challenge of all, for what these two women face together will either destroy families and friendship, or ensure survival, lasting happiness, and love.
