Revenge is sweeter than regret . . .
It is 1966. Calista is seventeen, beautiful and headstrong. She meets the handsome Alexandros and in an instant her whole life changes. Alexandros is magnetic, older - and rich. He sweeps Calista off her feet. She leaves her safe, affluent Dublin home for a different life in Cyprus alongside her new husband. But his family treat her with suspicion.
Meanwhile, Pilar is desperate to leave the grinding poverty of her life in rural Extremadura, so she moves to Madrid. There, she meets a man who offers her excitement and opportunity. Petros charms Pilar, and she begins to imagine a future with him - although she knows it's impossible for them to be together. Unknown to both women, tragic events are unfolding which will inextricably link their lives in a way that neither could have imagined. Events that will change them and their families forever.
