But soon a terrible tragedy engulfs the family, leaving Jenni alone and burdened with the stigma of her parents.

When a second tragedy strikes, Jenni makes her way to the town of Swansea to start a new life and perhaps to find the love she craves. But she must always live in fear of her secret, shameful past being discovered...
