Tamara (51), born in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Somewhere in the nineties, during a holiday in the Netherlands, Tamara got pregnant. Even though she was in her early thirties, this was unplanned. She did not know the father very well, but Errol turned out to be a caring fellow and they became a well loved couple among their friends and family.
His friends and family …

When their daughter Donna started studying, Tamara returned to the USA after being offered her old job. She enjoyed the company of her old friends and took care of her parents. Donna visits her twice a year for extended holidays.
But there are moments when Tamara asks herself; “Did I do the right thing by leaving Errol? And is it still possible to reverse everything to how it was?”
