The women in these stories are all approaching forty and they're all on the edge as they try to make sense of a pivotal moment in their lives. As they contemplate their connection with each other through a shared convent education they can't shake off, they each have a myriad of life-changing issues to overcome. Maggie has just had a baby, but also a diagnosis for MS. Jennifer has had an abortion, and is riven with regret. Delilah's married lover leaves her on a dirty weekend in Venice when his wife tells him she's pregnant. Ria broods over an abusive marriage, Flora's family don't recognise her after drastic plastic surgery, and a new bride falls in love with her stepson. Polly fights being a malade in Lourdes and Jasmine wakes up in a taxi with amnesia. They are all, like the businessman in casual clothes, 'displaced, but politely so, like a princess on a chat show.'
