TV Soap - - Inside -

Maggie is torn over how much to tell her brood, on Home and Away.

All Maggie As­toni wanted from the mo­ment her fam­ily set­tled in Sum­mer Bay was an eas­ier way of life and a hap­pier fu­ture ahead.

Af­ter the drama of the last few years in the city, Maggie (Kestie Mo­rassi) was cer­tain a new be­gin­ning in the sea­side com­mu­nity was ex­actly what they all needed.

But Maggie is about to face the bat­tle of her life in up­com­ing episodes of Home and Away, af­ter a spate of health prob­lems and a sur­prise di­ag­no­sis.

The di­ag­no­sis will shat­ter Maggie to the core. She was sure the fam­ily was about to em­bark on their best year ever, but Maggie is now con­fronted by the trou­bling fear – will she even live to see out the year?

This is one bat­tle Maggie will fight on her own and she de­cides to keep all the de­tails of her health close to her chest.

She is de­ter­mined to do things her way. What she doesn’t want is to put any ad­di­tional stress on her fam­ily.

Maggie re­lies on her in­ner strength so she can cope with any­thing that comes her way. Just how long she can keep this a se­cret is yet to be seen by all, but it will be­come a des­per­ate trial of courage and will. And, at times, not even Maggie will be cer­tain if she can hold it to­gether.

All around her right now, her beau­ti­ful young fam­ily are set­tling into Sum­mer Bay, in ways they had al­ways wanted.

Her daugh­ter Ziggy (So­phie Dill­man) has fi­nally found a real and last­ing love with Brody Mor­gan (Jack­son Hey­wood).

De­spite all the mis­giv­ings Ben (Ro­han Ni­chol) had about Brody, es­pe­cially that it was only months ago he had been in so much trou­ble with his ice ad­dic­tion, Brody proved to be a man ca­pa­ble of change. He has worked over­time to win the trust of all in the As­toni fam­ily.

As the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the young lovers grows ev­ery week, Maggie will be torn over just how much to tell her daugh­ter about what is re­ally go­ing on.

While Maggie is thrilled Ziggy has found true love, she does have con­cerns about just how long Brody will stay on the straight and nar­row.

It was only a few months ago that Brody’s ad­dic­tion had

con­sumed ev­ery as­pect of his life, which not only put him in dan­ger but also his fam­ily.

While Brody swears it is all be­hind him now, and has even won the ap­proval of Ben, Maggie wor­ries if Ziggy is strong enough to cope if Brody takes an­other bad turn.

At a time when Maggie wants to be a good mother to Ziggy and help guide her way, her thoughts are pre­oc­cu­pied by her own health bat­tles and with just how much more she can cope.
