Further details

Stella is exhausted. And it's not just baby Holly that's keeping her awake at night. Ben is soon to leave for university and Michael has just been offered a job in Dubai, so there's plenty on her mind. When an old friend shows up in need of Stella's help, she finds herself torn between Pontyberry and a new life abroad. But these kinds of problems are nothing Stella can't handle - it's only when Luke discovers his mum's long-kept secret that her boat is well and truly rocked.
