She had a love hate relationship with Ferry Road just like her mother. Family was very important to her but she wanted to put a little distance between her and the Road. If she could figure how to do that and still keep daily contact with her family all would be right in the world.
Basketball was her only love outside her home and a chance to play in college would give her the distance she craved and allow her to pursue her one real passion. Anne was a publicists dream. Talented on the court and attractive off. A player that a publicity campaign could be built around.
Her one real flaw was her inattention, well really gross dislike, of academic life. Both her parents and her new coaches knew from the outset that she would need constant attention to achieve.
Anne would probably live within two hundred miles of home; just far enough away that there would be no surprise family visits but close enough to get home when needed.
She had her athletic plan set. Her academic plan was a total mystery.
These were the Duffy girls. All talented, in their own right, but different as three sisters could be. The one thing they shared was their love of family and their need to improve their situations in their own ways.
