Julie’s been haunted by the memories of her failed marriage for far too long. Devastated when Lisa, her teenage daughter, sets off on a Gap Year trip, Julie realises she really is on her own. She buries herself in her work as a beauty journalist and tries not to worry about the lack of news from her daughter. Then, out of the blue she receives an invitation to go on a press trip to a perfumery school in Paris. There, she meets and falls in love with the suave, sexy Olivier and they begin a tentative cross-Channel relationship. But can she be sure he feels the same way about her? She has no time to find out- an urgent call from ex-husband Martin telling her that their daughter has disappeared whilst staying with him compels Julie to fly out to Australia in search of her. What or who made Lisa run away? Julie is confronted with her past, but is she ready to face the future?
