Be careful what you wish for...
Coming to Dublin to university is the realisation of a dream for Tansy Nugent. Student life is full of new friends, excitement and promise. And all that is before she meet Professor Sean Pollard. Older, suave, cultured and definitely a citizen of the world, he epitomises both her ideal man and a life that is a parallel one to anything she has known.
He also has a bit of a reputation.
Although their paths collide briefly, the effect has long-reaching and turbulent consequences for both. If fate has brought them together, common sense and ethics quickly pull them apart.
Sean vanishes without telling her. Tansy concentrates on her studies and her teaching career.
But life is never that simple and when he suddenly reappears a few years later she finds herself entrapped again.
And she finds herself remembering her flatmate's words of caution, 'be careful what you wish for...'
