The life, love and revenge of Poppy
Mak once lived a simple sheltered life. She grew up
without a mother in the shadow of her hard working, Polish
immigrant father in a sleepy fishing village on the South
Coast of New South Wales. Ostracized as a child, shy and
reclusive with no experience in love and little in life
she has to face the sudden death of her dad.
After battling depression, drug addiction and verging on suicide she begins to rebuild herself; mind, body and soul.
Now re-born, with a leather clad exterior, soft heart and a deep seeded hate. She sets about finding not only the two brothers that destroyed her trust as a child but the girl who she feels is the one true person from her childhood that took away her ability to live. Jo Fairhill!
After inadvertently enlisting the help of her only friend Lottie, a worldly single mother and ex Junkie from the streets of Sydney she met in her NA group. The duo go on to not only find the elusive Jo but discover no matter how bad you think you have it, there is always someone worse off.
