After losing her beloved husband in a tragic accident, she's successfully raised their three children single-handedly. Now in their twenties, she slightly smugly feels that they are well set up to travel the path she planned. Except why is her eldest daughter, Tamara, a high-flying marketing executive, so secretive and why won't she commit to a relationship? Then there's Anthony, Kate's middle child, who is engaged to a wealthy New York socialite - it will be the wedding of the year, so why doesn't he seem happy? And as for her youngest daughter, Claire, at twenty-six she's on a successful career path until she suddenly reveals she's in love with, in Kate's opinion, the `wrong man'. We all know that life rarely turns out the way we plan for our children. But it's about listening, learning when to let go and letting them live the life that makes them happy.
