Hester and Harriet lead comfortable lives in their pretty cottage in a
country village. Having had a rather exciting six months, the widowed
sisters decide to further expand their own horizons by venturing forth
to Italy for their annual holiday.
But with a huge secret hanging between the sisters, an unlikely new
love on the landscape for Hester and new beginnings also beckoning
for Harriet, Italy provides more opportunities for adventure than
either of them could ever have imagined…
Hester and Harriet, two widowed sisters who share a home, like their routine. But when they take in first a young girl and her tiny baby they find hiding in a bus shelter and then their truculent teenage nephew, their orderly lives are turned upside down. Seven days of mystery, mayhem and danger ensue - and nothing will never be the same again.
