Publisher's Summary

After 20 years of comfortable marriage, and with the kids finally off her hands, Sarah Lewis realises she has filled the washing machine once too often. Surely there must be more to life than this?
What she wants is an adventure - a wild, unpredictable adventure - but her husband, good old reliable David, is very happy with the status quo. What Sarah needs is a gap year for grown-ups - and she wants to do it alone.
Confident the grass must be greener elsewhere, she heads for France, leaving behind a devastated and resentful David, faced with an empty house and a freezer full of meals-for-one. But is life really better on the other side of the fence?

I am a big fan of Annie Sanders and have read or listened to almost all of their books. I was disapppointed with this story (although the narrator was great) as it dealt with heavier material and seemed more somber. If you're looking for something more light-hearted, check out their books The X-Mas Factor and Busy Woman Seeks Wife (both on audible).

I loved the narrator. I loved the story. I matched me at place in my life where I felt I might need to go off exploring. I kind of did for a bit, without anyone really knowing about it, and realized I didn't actually want what I set out thinking I did, much like the main character, but I did learn-and am still learning-a great deal about myself and what I want my life to look like.
