We’ve all missed trains before, but what if by missing a train, you almost missed the love of your life?
Nadia is determined to get her life back on track, and one of her goals is to catch the 7.30 train to work.

One day, one particular entry catches their eye: “To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress…”. Could it really be meant for her? And can Nadia find this mysterious admirer and open her heart to love again? Read More »
Kate and Tully have been best friends since they were both 13 and lived across the street from one another. But even at that age, they could not have been more different; Kate was shy and uncool, with a loving family who embarrassed her at every turn; Tully was the coolest girl in the world, popular and ambitious, but nursing a secret heartache caused by her mother’s addiction and abandonment. Nonetheless, they saw something in each other and forged a bond that would last into the new Millennium.
Tully’s ambition has taken her to the dizzying heights of fame as a TV news anchor and now with her own daytime talk show. Kate realised early on that a life of fame and fortune was not for her. Her ambition was to fall in love and have children. What she did not expect, however, was how achieving this goal would change her forever. Throughout all of this, Tully and Kate have stuck together, supporting one another through thick and thin. But even the strongest friendships can be tested. Read More »
