A story of friendship between five women who met at school and have had an annual reunion ever since. This is one year in their lives. The time between the two reunions sees their respective journeys unfold with tragedy and love. Not all of the five survive. The friendship forged all those years ago sustains them through each crisis.
Lulworth Cove in Dorset is the spring board for this tale of meetings, partings and dreams unfulfilled. One gave up marriage for a career and to look after her mother.
A second friend has known tragedy that she just can't shake off. At school she was their protector but she faces one challenge too many. Another has the most stable life of all the friends but being comfortable is not the way to fulfil her dreams. Her husband's accident forces her to re-evaluate once more.
The fourth friend is an abused wife who is empowered by the kindness of friends and strangers. Completing the quintet is another whose professional life is very successful. Her private life on the other hand, with three failed marriages, is an agony to her. Outwardly she is confident but underneath suffers great loss of direction.
Their friendship is sustaining and immovable; but not blind.
