Watermelon Synopsis

Meet Claire Walsh.

On the day she gives birth to her first child, Claire's husband James tells her he's been having an affair, and that now's the right time to leave her.

Right for who exactly?

Exhausted, tearful and a tiny bit furious, Claire doesn't know what to do. So she decides to go back to basics . . . and runs home to Mum and Dad.

But it's not the sanctuary she'd been hoping for. Juggling her sisters' drama, her parents' pity and the demands of a baby, Claire desperately misses the way things were. So when James gets back in touch, eager to put things right, Claire faces a choice.

Will she forgive and forget? Or can she find the courage to take a chance on herself, and start a life of her own?
