Wife on the Run

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2018 - Fiction - 432 pages
When two technology-related disasters hit within days of each other, Paula knows her comfortable suburban life has been irrevocably blown apart. One involves the public shaming of her teenage daughter, the other is a shocking discovery about her husband. With her world unraveling around her, Paula does the only thing that makes any sense to her: she runs away from it all. She pulls her children out of school and takes off on a trip across Australia with her elderly father and his caravan. The only rule is No Technology--no phones, no Facebook, no Instagram, no tablets, games, or computers. It's time to get back to basics and learn how to be a family again. This is a thrilling, tender, and hugely entertaining story of loss, love, and discovery.
