At forty-four loyal English wife Lara Winters discovers that Brock, her husband of 21 years, has betrayed her. Devastated, desperate, she flees her home in London, and heads for the farthest place she can imagine from her old, blinkered life. She heads for Byron Bay, Australia.
On her first day in the laid-back town, Lara almost runs over the red-haired, slightly raddled Ruby in a car park. Relieved to be still alive, the warm-hearted Aussie leases Lara a small cottage on her semi-rural property where Lara’s journey of self-discovery begins.
