It?s time for Kate to move on and start a new life.
When Kate meets Jago, it feels like she?s about to get that new beginning. Soon, though, her doubts return?despite the fact that everyone thinks she?s irrational. But is she imagining things? Or does she have a real reason to worry? After all, accidents happen.
