The modern woman is a Jill of all trades ...Ava is a wife, lover, mother, daughter, friend, fixer, boss ...so many different people, in fact, she no longer knows what it means to be herself. Not that anyone will let her - not her work-obsessed husband, nor her tearaway younger daughter, nor her out-of-control Dad, nor even her sassy-but-lonely best friend. There's always someone wanting something from her. She's trying to do her best for all of them but lately feels like she can't make everyone happy. And that's before she discovers that her elder daughter Alison is in deep, deep trouble. Can Ava keep a hold of the most precious pieces of her heart? And what will happen if she loses one?
