Synopsis

At 42, Constance, left to nurse Pa and then Ma, has lived her life through others' experiences. Sister Daphne moves from one alternative therapy to another to try and cure her general hypochondria; Alison is so sophisticated yet never able to sustain a relationship for long; Bridget, the third sister, brusque but caring has three sons and a husband with a wandering eye; Edwin, the eldest brother, is coming home to England for his share of the family home but suffering a personal crisis and finally, Jake. Well, no one heard from him...Warring siblings aside, Constance wants something more. She needs her own life: to create her own story. So one morning, she just takes off, telling no one. Constance finds the love she is looking for but with it comes his damaged, troublesome daughter who proves to be a torment to her and yet seems to need love as much as she does. As the years roll by and Constance settles down to her new life, still the family come to her at Gull's Rest Cottage, bequeathed to her by the one man she has truly loved. But the past will not let her rest for there is always unfinished business...
