And then one day Emma sees a picture of a young Zoe with the famous musician Luke Trainer. Is it possible that the front man of the internationally renowned rock band Freight Train is her father? Emma is determined to find out. But in her quest for the truth, Emma discovers more than she bargains for. And Zoe, who worked so hard to keep Emma safe from Luke's world, is afraid she will now lose everything.
