Janey is 18 and all alone apart from her baby daughter. Disowned by her family she is forced to move into a small flat on Peppercorn Street and learn to survive by herself. Just as her new life starts to show promise, events from her past catch up with her. Nicole is renting one of the new luxury flats on the street. She's just walked away from her husband and teenage sons, suspecting her husband of having an affair and tired of being taken for granted. Winifred has lived in her huge family home at the top of the street for over eighty years but feels completely lost. All her friends have died and her nephew is trying to persuade her to go into a retirement home. But she doesn't want to leave. A chance meeting between all three women sparks up a beautiful friendship that will change their lives forever. However, things are not what they seem in any of their lives and they each find themselves tested by their individual troubles. Set in the stunning Wilshire countryside, Peppercorn Street is just that sort of place where long-term residents and newcomers, rich and poor, old and young, come together as a neighbourhood.
