U is for … Re-United?

Repairing a friendship is easier said than done.

Fern Mortimer turned her back on her old life after a hit-and-run accident, and it was only years later when she rejoined the workforce that a persistent redhead – Nessa – made the effort to be her friend. The invitation to join Nessa and three others on a summer holiday offered Fern the chance to start afresh.

What followed was supposed to be a relaxing holiday in the Algarve, but meeting the other girls – particularly Raven – only fuelled her self-doubts, sending her scuttling back into the safety of her shell.

Yet, when Fern became the victim of an apparently unwarranted assault – albeit an unsuccessful attempt to drown her in the Med – it was Raven who came to her assistance. The question arose regarding Nessa’s whereabouts and the answer was hard to stomach.

Supporting Fern throughout the trial months later back in Portugal, Raven showed herself as a loyal friend. But Nessa had all but ostracised herself from the girls, taking the side of the attacker – her boyfriend, Stefan Pereira.

Could their friendship ever be repaired?
