Fab-u-lous! This author certainly knows what makes a woman tick! For those of us who have had to juggle children, paid employment, husbands, home-making, laundry, cleaning, shopping and everything else, and who never have a moment to ourselves, this will be familiar ground.
In this story, the lady of the house just wants a moment in time to relax and enjoy a nice soak in a bubble-bath. She discovers that she's run out of the product and sort of panics. She's been looking forward to, and needs, her relaxing 'me time' and she's determined to get it! Off in her car to a late night shop in downtown Seattle, USA; but there's no stock there.
However, our lady learns that her favorite product is available in Canada. Without properly thinking it through, she flips and takes off, to drive hundreds of miles across the border!
She finally arrives, shops, and books into a hotel to have her luxurious bath and that's the start of it all. She goes off the rails. Suddenly her husband and son, home, job and life don't seem as important.
Hubby naturally gets concerned when nobody knows where his wife has disappeared to, and tracks her down. When she tells him that she wants a month to be herself, he jumps to the conclusion that she must be having an Affair. (well she is - with herself!)
You will have to read this yourself to discover the journey and the people our lady meets along the way, but suffice to say that I laughed out loud, reached for the tissues, and couldn't put this down.
Wistful and funny, and written for all those who ever had 'One of Those Moments' - you know the ones, when in desperation you herd your kids out, lock them in the car, turn around and just sleepwalk back indoors so that you can finally get five minutes to sit down with a cup of strong coffee in peace without someone demanding a piece of you! Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Yes, this author understands women like me through and through. Don't feel guilty any longer, but do read and enjoy.
PS - No man on the planet will understand the "Moment" - it only happens to women!
