Whatever life holds, friends come first...

A rat, who lies, cheats and uses women until he tires of them. Her life is turned upside down and then the unthinkable happens.

She makes a decision that has disastrous consequences for both of them. Maggie: Flame-haired, sexy, vibrant and fun-loving. She lives life to the full and then she marries. Her wings are well and truly clipped by the demands of marriage and motherhood. Has she made the biggest mistake of her life?
