Olivia spends months every year planning a lavish holiday that everyone in her family will enjoy. This summer she has arranged a dream trip on a luxurious Mediterranean yacht, which she hopes will be the most memorable of all. More than anything, she hopes to express her love and her regret at all the time she was away during her children’s younger years. But her younger daughter, Cassie, a hip London music producer, refuses the invitation altogether. Her older daughter Liz is preoccupied with a chance to recapture her dream of being a writer. And her sons John and Phillip are completely wrapped up in their marriages – one for the better, one for the worse. Immersed in the splendor of the Riviera, this should have been a summer to remember, but Olivia returns home to a family divided, with grudges festering and secrets kept guarded.
As each of these individuals confront their truths they also learn to accept the enduring, unconditional love of their family – and a mother who is strong enough to take more than her fair share of the blame, as long as she can count the blessings that come, too.
