Are some memories best forgotten?



Maureen Bancroft has never learned the art of putting herself first. As a widow with a gentle temperament and humble ways, she's been easy to take advantage of.

All that changes when an unexpected windfall comes her way. Determined to make up for lost time, she decides to take a holiday and, needing a companion, looks up her friend, Barbara Hayle.



Glamorous, and with a successful career on the stage, Barbara seems to be everything that Maureen is not. But things aren't as they seem, and what starts out as a nostalgic trip between friends, becomes something different altogether. Much has changed in the years since they first met now Maureen has something that her friend desperately needs, and Barbara is used to getting exactly what she wants.



As their journey takes them down some dark byways, will this be the one friendship that Maureen should have left firmly in the past?
