There's a world out there for her to explore - but she's about to make a different kind of discovery.
Love can tear us apart
Jan, Kate and Georgie's mother, loved her little girls with all her heart. Some people might say she smothered them, but she just cared so much for them. Maybe there was another reason Jan wanted to keep her girls close? Letting them explore and question the world around then might destroy the facade of the world they grew up in . . .
