SynopsisThe twins' unorthodox childhood - as evacuee babies in Cornwall, at boarding school, then living with their Aunt Maggie - made them grow up self-sufficient. Miranda was the vibrant, flamboyant one. Meg was quieter, more self-effacing, but it was she who always knew when anything bad was happening to Miranda. As they grew up, the bond between them held - until Meg went back to Cornwall and fell in love. Their lives shifted, but the link was still there, in spite of all that was to happen.
