Summary
Agreeing to care for the baby that a terminally ill former girlfriend claims is his, recovering alcoholic Noel turns to a loving network of family and friends for help until a social worker attempts to place the baby in a foster home
Summary
Baby Frankie is born into an unusual family. Her mother is desperate to find someone to take care of her child and she doesn't have much time. Noel doesn't seem to be the most promising of fathers but despite everything, he could well be Frankie's best hope. As for Lisa, she is prepared to give up everything for the man she loves; surely he's going to love her back? And Moira is having none of it. She knows what's right, and has the power to change the course of Frankie's life . . . but Moira is hiding secrets of her own. Minding Frankie is a story about unconventional families, relationships which aren't quite what they seem, and the child at the heart of everyone's lives.
