Alice is married to Nathan. She & her 1st husband (Tom) had a daughter (Sophia) who is now 15. Tom is deceased. Alice was unexpectedly widowed about 10 years ago. Nathan adopted Sophia. Alice & Nathan have a daughter (Olivia) who is 9. They live in London (where WHILST is a word they use ALOT!!!)
Alice owns & manages an interior design firm. She's about to close on a BIG deal, in Japan. She & Nathan will buy land, build apartments, design the interiors & then sell them. But, Alice is having second thoughts. She can't leave the girls & fly halfway around the world. Everytime she thinks about it, she's paralyzed by fear. And, she isn't convinced their marriage is going to survive. She suspects he's fooling around with someone else.
Alice finds an earring in Nathan's car. It doesn't belong to her or her daughters. Then, a huge bouquet is delivered to her. But, the card is addressed to "my darling Rachel". Naturally, she assumes Nathan meant to send the flowers to his mistress, not his wife. And, she finds a hotel receipt for a couples massage, in his overnight bag. She's convinced her husband is cheating. Of course, he denies it. She starts taking antidepressants & drinking more than ever. She doesn't believe a word he says, anymore.
Her best friend (Beth) has a daughter Millie. Millie has never known her father. He left when Beth was pregnant & they never saw him again. She found out, purely by chance, that he was seeing someone else. She didn't have a clue. Now, 9 years later, Beth wants to find him. Millie is starting to wonder why her daddy left. Why he didn't stay long enough to meet her? But, more than anything, Beth wants revenge.
