A story of love, lust and broken promises set in 1960s Belfast.
To her neighbours in Belfast, Maura Brady looks like she has it all - an attractive husband, a comfortable home and a gorgeous little boy, Danny. But behind closed doors, things are far from idyllic. Maura has long harboured doubts that her husband Adam only married her because he was quickly trying to mend a broken heart. Years ago, Adam's childhood sweetheart Evelyn suddenly left town to marry a rich, older man and left Adam shocked and shaken.
But now that Evelyn has returned, as gorgeous and provocative as ever, can Adam keep his unresolved feelings for her in check As Maura's suspicions grow, she turns to her good friend Francie for support - but will her own innocent feelings spill into something more with him As the date of young Danny's birthday party draws near, the future of Adam and Maura's marriage hangs in the balance . . .
