    You can take the small-town girl out of the big city - but can you take the big city out of the girl?

    Job. Flat. Boyfriend. Tick. Tick. Tick.

    Aisling (seems) to be winning at life. But life has other ideas.

    Fired. Homeless. Dumped. Tick. Tick. Tick.

    When everything comes crashing down around her, moving back in with her mam seems like a disaster.

    But might returning to her roots provide the answers Aisling's looking for?
