It is meant to be one of the happiest days of Vinnie Deakin's life: her younger daughter's wedding day. But her joy soon evaporates when Vinnie's husband calmly announces that he is leaving her. Vinnie tries to hide the truth from her workmates, convinced that her husband will come back to her, but kind and caring Betty Trubshaw isn't a fool. She's heard the rumours about Tommy Deakin and, when things go from bad to worse, Betty's friendship gives Vinnie the strength to carry on.
Betty is not the only person who cares about Vinnie's future - her neighbour, Noreen Adler, though brash and outspoken, surely means well; and her boss, Mr Hamlin, has always had a soft spot for Vinnie, if only he had the courage to let his feelings show. But there are people close to Vinnie who are not what they seem and she must tread carefully if she is ever going to trust again...
