Especially as the past - and past feelings - come back to haunt her.
Meanwhile, an ever-desperate Hollie is faced with the decision of a lifetime if she's ever to get the baby she wants, but just how much is she willing to put at stake?Find out more in this mesmerising and heartbreaking tale from a stunning British talent about sacrifice, sisterhood, long-held secrets and dangerous desires.
