Just like any other mother, Samantha adores her two little girls who are everything that matters to her in the world. Her own childhood was unhappy with an abusive, neglectful and inadequate mother... Tormented by her childhood memories she struggles to function as an adult and finds comfort in alcohol until it begins to destroy her life. April Gardiner is the social worker who strives to help Samantha to hold on to her children whilst her priority is to keep them safe. At the same time as dealing with the trauma and sufferings of the families she works with and making life changing decisions for children, April is trying to deal with her own personal issues which are impacting on her life. Both women had a similar start in life, but their personal childhood experiences determined the adults they ultimately became. The story raises issues around disadvantage and describes how the state and government ideology perpetuates underprivilege and inequality, making it almost impossible for those caught up in the cycle to avoid a steep spiral downwards. Whilst the story provides an insight into children and families social work and the dilemmas and life changing decisions that are part and parcel of their everyday work, the main theme of the story is how the luck of who you are born to, will determine who you later become, and the steep uphill struggle faced by the unfortunate children who are born in underprivileged circumstances and deprivation.Although there is sadness, there are also happy outcomes for some and a spattering of humour throughout. My aim was to raise laughter as well as tears.
