Willow goes from bad to worse.
Her drinking is spiralling out of control. She threw a tantrum when she and Rob went to see the lawyer. She believes everybody is against her, and she’s even violent with her husband. Now the family comes together to join forces and persuade her to go to rehab. Willow is too depressed after her mother’s death and feels lonely. And now when she has agreed to go to rehab, she feels she is alone, and as she takes a bath, she also swallows a bunch of pills. I’m afraid that something might happen to her. I hope someone comes before she drowns herself now that she is unconscious.
As for Lacey, she has some clues about who her real mother might be. Through some old newspapers that she and Sally found in the attic, they realize that the common element is a bride shop. Then she learns that in those days the star of the shop was not the owner, but the designer, someone called Cora Maguire, who now lives abroad. Is this Lacey’s mother? I’m curious to know how this woman agreed to let another woman raise her baby, and I’m also intrigued to find out why Lillian went along with it. As far as we know, Lillian was a hard, self-confident woman, so she didn’t need to do this for her husband. Then why? What are the secrets this family still keeps? And apparently, Joe Taylor, Lacey’s father, left her a letter in his will, but Lillian never gave it to her. So I wonder if the letter is in the box Willow and Sally found the day they sorted out their mother’s things. And what did the man say in the letter? Did he reveal something more about Lacey’s origins?
