Poppy Furlong has the dream life – gorgeous home, loving husband and a five-year-old son she adores. Then overnight she loses it all – her home, gym membership, expensive car, regular trips to the beauty salon – because her husband’s business partner has disappeared with the company profits.

As she attempts to rebuild her family, Poppy leaves Dublin for the suburbs. There she acquires a mother-in-law from hell, a father she hardly knows, a new job, a new friend, a better insight into parenting and a new life. Will it match up to the old one? Or might it just be better?
