Olivia is a young girl from a working-class family background; she comes from a small countryside village, nestled away along with other villages, in the Hope-Valley area of Derbyshire, in England. The story follows the events through her life over two decades. Beginning in 1967 as she is brought by an ambulance, to a hospital in Manchester-England, when she is losing an aborted baby, and endures an inhumane and horrific experience at the hands of a sadistic doctor. Olivia's life then begins to move forward when she joins a happy 'Hippy-Movement' crowd, before entering into a controversial marriage to a man many years her senior. When a short time later she experiences with her husband, a very traumatic car accident. Where at the hospital the attending doctor's prognosis predicting that her life, will soon be coming to an end!! But her body, soul, and willpower insist on fighting for her survival. A few years later she enters into a second doomed marriage. And in the following years that pass, Olivia's life seems to turn into a big 'ROLLER-COASTER-RIDE!!!' Now always filled with Sex-Drugs-&-Rock-&-Roll, as she clings to this wild, and crazy-hedonistic-lifestyle for her own emotional security!! Until many years later when taking an overall-view and stock of her life, which now seems to becoming so totally, out of her control. She finally decides that it's time for her to jump off, all of these fast-fun-filled-rides, which are taking her to nowhere!! And after much soul-searching about what she really does now want in her life, she decides that it is time for a reconciliation with her second husband Alex. They both decide to go to start a fresh new life, when they go to live together in North America, leaving all of her past behind her in England. So now finally at last, Olivia begins to enjoy the much-needed love of her husband and family, which deep down she had been craving for most of her life. Until suddenly from somewhere out of the blue one night, in the year of 1987, a deep, dark, hidden force in her life returns, turning twenty-long-lost- hidden-years, into a 'FULL-CIRCLE!!!!!!!' Motivating her now to visit the world-down-under in Australia, forcing her to now confront and deal with, her dark-secret-hidden-past, which tragically ends, with sad-dramatic-consequences!!!!!
