The travel bug
Move over Thelma and Louise! Travelling is one thing Maddy Goodchild has never really considered doing. She's done lots of things - most of them badly - including getting married much too young and getting divorced soon afterwards. The only thing Maddy's ever done right is raising her teenage daughter. But now she's taken off to travel the world, Maddy can't help feeling a little bit jealous. A surprise win on the lottery gives Maddy and her best-friend a glimmer of an idea. They could do the sensible thing and spend the money on paying off the mortgage and new carpets. Or they could live a little. After all the world is their oyster and who knows what - or whom - might be waiting for them over the next horizon?
