When best friends Dee Campbell and Jean Williams leave school in 1959, it feels like every opportunity awaits them.
Their families haven't long moved from a rundown part of the city to leafy Kirkby when Jean's father wins the Irish sweepstake and soon Jean's set up her own hairdressing salon, while both girls have fallen for good-looking lads with prospects.
But Dee's father is about to discover a disturbing truth about her fiance which will tear the family apart.
As Dee flees to Ireland, Jean marries Tony, blissfully unaware that she's not the only pretty girl to catch his eye...Tumultuous years lie ahead but Dee and Jean will learn that the people who love you will always be there when you need them most...
