Meet Emma.

Emma is thirty six and married with two young children. Emma has lost her way, struggling with getting older and becoming a Mum. Emma is continually staggering from one disaster to the next. Married for too long really when the children came along, she is unable to deal with the aftermath of her husband’s rather too predictable affair with a 19 year old whom he’d met on the internet. Self confidence in tatters, she cannot forgive him and the chasm between them feels too great to cross.  Emma is overweight, unhappy, drinking too much and gets her kicks and revenge by flirting with the fit Dads at the school gates. There is nothing wrong with her libido; it’s only her husband she can’t stand to touch. Through mindless days and drink fuelled evenings Emma is rushing headlong toward single-motherhood when she meets and falls for Matt, the twenty two year old elder brother of one of her son’s school friends. And so begins her next disaster.

Meet Molly.

Molly is already that single mother. She lives alone in her Hobiton house with her two teenage boys and she shares equal parental responsibility with their Dad, her best friend, who lives his playboy life in his London flat and has the boys every weekend.  Molly is a total commitment-phobe; happy in Hobiton with her cleaning jobs and her baking, living in the moment and burying her head in the sand where the future is concerned. She has no interest in men or romance so when she bumps into her first love Nick, who has now somehow become a famous rock star, she has absolutely no intention in picking up where they’d left off all of those years ago back in the ‘nineties when they were both fifteen.

Then the girls meet and become friends and soon they are heading to Ibiza with their various offspring for a holiday break that will change both of their lives forever. Molly is planning to meet up with Nick, who is playing a gig over there and Emma is following Matt who has found work on the island playing with his own band in one of the clubs.

The holiday doesn’t go quite as planned though and by the time they fly back into Britain they are no longer speaking and both women have choices to make that will change the course of their lives forever.
