NotesAt 11 years old a girl is in a car crash which leaves her brain damaged. The story picks up her life twenty years later. She is married to a man with learning difficulties and has a 'normal' daughter. Her mother has never been able to accept the change in her own daughter and has even come to believe that her grand-daughter is actually her daughter. The way in which the daughter and her husband are portrayed has been criticised.
