For eight years Flora and Fin had an exciting, intense relationship, but when Flora wanted to settle down and have children, Fin vanished. Then three years later, suddenly he reappears. Can a second chance at love ever end happily?
For eight years Flora's love affair with Fin was a whirlwind of fun and spontaneity - but when Flora wanted to settle down and have children, Fin vanished.
Life moved on and Flora's world filled with other people, other cares. There were benefits to being single - no socks under the bed, no mess in the bathroom - even if the memory of Fin could never be completely erased.
But then suddenly, shockingly, Fin reappears. He's a changed man, he says, and her wants her back.
Is this a chance to put right the wrongs? Or a massive mistake?
