The perfect life is as easy to bake as the perfect pie...
Hetty Greengrass is the perfect wife and mother. Spending the last twelve years helping her husband Dan run Sunnybank Farm certainly keeps her busy, but when her daughter Poppy picks her aunt as her inspiration for a school project, Hetty is left full of self-doubt. How did she not become her daughters hero?
Sure her biggest talent - baking deliciously pies - has been limited to charity work and the village fete. But when she signs up to a competition run by Cumbria's Finest to find the very best produce from the region she hopes to make her daughter proud . . . and maybe reclaim something for herself.
Except that her life that had seemed so apple pie perfect is suddenly changing around her... Cracks are starting to appear in her marriage and shocking secrets are beginning to come to light. Now her world is crumbling around her and Hetty has to decide where her priorities really lie...
