They called them the Orchid Girls. Grace. Molly. Charlotte.
One of them is in love. One of them is a liar. One of them is dead.

Fifteen years later Grace and Molly are worlds apart. Grace has a glittering career and a loving husband. Molly is a lonely, unemployed alcoholic. Grace has everything to lose. Molly has nothing.
