1961, Liverpool. Flora Wilcox's fatherless daughters couldn't be more different - Hilary is serious, hardworking and bespectacled, while Isobel is an attractive blonde who seeks fun and excitement. When Isobel's boyfriend drops her to take up with Hilary, a rift develops between the girls, and even their mother can't build bridges. While Hilary settles into wedded bliss and motherhood, Isobel escapes to London and a passionate affair with a much older married man. As Isobel worries whether her secrets will find her out, Hilary's twin sons are struggling with dyslexia. Can the sisters support each other when they need it most?
