Yorkshire 1908: Naive Clara and her impulsive sister Livvy escape the vigilant eye of their straight-laced grandmother and fall under the spell of a wayward   heartbreaker.

London 2000: 36 year old Alex is successful, attractive and certain her life is mapped out...but with a neurotic flatmate, a mother who doesn't recognise her, and a married lover who deals in futures but lives in the present, is life really so sweet?

Hearts catch fire as past and present family histories collide...
