A story of a middle aged woman who is happy in her life and work. She wins a lottery and she pays off her bills and mortgage. Her husband decides they should take a ‘Gap Year’ from work. He has always wanted to travel and she can’t travel far because of her fears of flying and going on the water. He is off to travel the world and she takes the Chunnel to France to volunteer at a retreat. It becomes a time of learning and reflection for her. So many of the woman’s experiences resonated with me and it was a very satisfying read. The author tied up all loose ends and left this reader feeling better. Thanks Lucy/Linn.
