Meet Lucy, Tina and Natalie, twenty-something friends who are all negotiating the risky business of being grown-up. Lucy knows exactly what she wants: her marriage to be a success, her children to be perfect, and to be the ultimate home-maker. Tina knows what she wants too: her journalism career to take off and to see her name as a byline in a national newspaper ...and the illicit affair she's started leaves her free enough to follow her dreams. Natalie just wants to be happy - happy with the boyfriend she's dated since college, happy with the job she's drifted into, happy with a life she thinks is enough - but is it really? Ten years later, all three women have the lives they thought they wanted. But somehow, reality isn't quite as neat and clean-cut as their dreams...
