Love keeps us together

Kate and Georgie are best friends, different in the way siblings always are, united by the bond of sisterhood. Georgie’s past has kept her close to her family, she cared for her mother while her sister travelled the world. At the age of 32, Georgie’s decided it’s her time to start discovering. There’s a world out there for her to explore – but she’s about to make a different kind of discovery.

Love can tear us apart

Jan, Kate and Georgie’s mother, loved her little girls with all her heart. Some people might say she smothered them, but she just cared so much for them. Maybe there was another reason Jan wanted to keep her girls close? Letting them explore and question the world around then might destroy the façade of the world they grew up in . . .
