What do you do when there’s nothing left to lose?

Lily and Laurence Lamont-Jones had it all: lavish holidays in exotic locations, a top private school for their two children and a beautiful home in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Then Laurence loses his job, and their house and all their belongings are repossessed. With nowhere else to go, the family move into a flea-ridden council house on a notoriously rough estate and start to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.

But will Lily’s dream of returning to a world of luxury ever come true – or will she learn that money doesn’t always buy you happiness…
