A modern reimagining of The Lady of Shalott. Elena is desperate. Her husband was supposed to be her Lancelot, the man to rescue her from her cursed life. But knights in shining armour are not in the habit of riding past suburban homes in twenty-first century Australia.
Elena lives a loney, fear-driven life; fearful she is not enough - good, likeable, smart, pretty or perfect enough. If only she could transform herself into an interesting, attractive person, her brave knight would appear and sweep her away to happy ever after.
In a bid to break the curse, Elena navigates a maze of clairvoyants, counsellors, mentors, EFT, yoga and meditation.
Meanwhile, terrified of being alone, she lurches from one disastrous relationship to another in search of her perfect partner. Is he the exotic Isaac, the strong, silent Michael, the larger-than-life Garridan, the youthful Channing or the mystical Jivan? And can he save her from herself?
