Poppy Furlong has the dream life - a gorgeous home, a loving husband and a five-year-old son she adores.
Then overnight she loses it all - her home, gym membership, expensive car, regular trips to the beauty salon - because her husband's business partner has disappeared with the company profits.
As she attempts to rebuild her family, Poppy leaves Dublin for the suburbs.
There she acquires a mother-in-law from hell, a father she hardly knows, a new job, a new friend, a better insight into parenting.
It's a whole new life, but will it match up to the old one? Or might it just be better?
