Once upon a time, Jacks Morgan had dreams.
She would have a career and travel the world. She would own a house on the beach, and spend long nights with her boyfriend strolling under the stars.
But life had other ideas. First Martha came along, then Jonty. Then her mother moved in, and now their little terrace is bursting at the seams.
Jacks gave up on her dreams to look after her family. If only, just for once, her family would look after her…
Jacks Davies’ life hasn’t turned out the way she’d envisaged.
