Another twist in this love story is both of these women turn out to be very good friend with each other despite their love rival and soon enough Caitlin realized that her husband is connected in a dangerous relationship with Vera. Vera's turmoil love life keeps on going and she married another man William Killick but loved Dylan also that made it even complicated.

Soon enough the soldier William goes to war and when he come back he find out Vera's relationship with Dylan and it end up in a deadly result.
