'One last word of warning, my girl. Keep well away from that Hadyn Jenkins.'

In spite of her father's words of warning, Sharon Pritchard decides to give up everything to follow her heart. However, her new life with Hadyn is anything but easy. Although he is handsome and charming, he is feckless and unreliable. And they soon find themselves sinking ever faster into poverty.

Can her love for Hadyn survive and will she be able to provide a better future for herself and her son...?
