Meet Anna Walsh.

Lying in her parents' Good Front Room, covered in bandages, Anna dreams of leaving Dublin and returning to her beloved New York.

To her home. To her job. And most of all to her husband Aidan.

Unfortunately, her family have other ideas. She's staying put. And Aidan? He's refusing to even take her calls.

The last thing Anna wants is to think about how she ended up in this mess. But with nothing else to do, she's forced to ask herself why she's thousands of miles from the life she loves.

Where did it all go wrong? And can she fix it, before it's too late?
