Emily is a strong, independent woman who meets the man of her dreams in Adam. Their relationship goes from strength to strength, though over time, Emily feels an oppressive influence from Adam’s mother, Pammie. Despite Emily’s initial forgiving nature, she soon finds that Pammie is doing everything she can to undermine and intimidate her.

But why is Pammie so set on destroying her? Is she just an over-protective mother looking out for Adam’s best interests or does she have a more sinister motive?

Two strong women, battling for the emotions and control of one man. But who will win? All Emily knows is that Adam’s last girlfriend is dead. Will she suffer the same fate?
