The stories of family are myriad. They are very interesting as well because within each story we glimpse episodes and characters all known to us, sometimes us!
The story of Iris - the older so called steadier sister, married, two kids and then we have Leah, the younger one, volatile, the one who has been mum's favorite, always the one who got away from every escapade lightly, the one who attracted the most boys.
Fast forward to just before Leah's wedding. She is getting married to someone rather posh, rather rich and wants everything to be just perfect. She also seems to be very mixed, her behavior is erratic. Iris has turned up at her request leaving behind her failing marriage, hoping that the break will also show her clearly what she should do.
Two different characters, each bound to the other by the bonds of family and parents need to sort out their futures without hurting those around them. A family story very well told.
