Two very different women attempt to achieve the impossible! Francine, mother of four, has her ‘super mum’ status challenged when she is forced to change her life to cope with her young son suffering from ADD. She is an admirable character. The other is Jodi, famous film star who wants to give her child a ‘normal’ country village upbringing … difficult. How these two become involved with each other is the centre of this lovely tale of friendship.
