Ever been tempted to pretend you were someone exotic, someone adventurous, someone different?
Set in Ireland, England, and Australia, this is the funny and heart-warming story of two people whose lives are about to turn upside down and inside out. Eva is off to Australia on a break from her job in a Dublin delicatessen, hoping to forget a fizzled romance and find inspiration for a new career. Joseph is taking a holiday from his stressful London job. Each is on a search for some answers about life. Then something quite unexpected happens. They meet each other.

"A long, glorious romp with a supporting cast of entertaining characters... a charming story told with large doses of love and humour." (The Australian Women's Weekly)
"The story was slow and whiney."
Work on the story.
The characters were not ones I would want to know. Eva was pathetic. What was with her inner voice stuff, it was creepy.
Her voice was not bad, but you could hear her swallowing and having a dry mouth. I am not sure if this was poor editing, but it was unpleasant to listen to.
The story was way too predicable. It was whiny and predicable.
