Lucy stole Rose's 'happily ever after' because she wanted Rose's husband, Peter. But as Peter’s interest diminishes and Lucy’s domestic responsibilities increase, Lucy wonders if the 'happily ever after' is all a big con. Rose is now a devoted single mum but her twin boys seem to need her less and less and without them she wonders what she amounts to. They both envy Connie, who is happily married and effortlessly balancing two kids with a fulfilling career until, that is, a dangerous old flame flickers back into view at the school gates and threatens her marriage. All three women need more than blind belief to negotiate their way through modern life. Things can only get better - or worse. Or better?
