Meet Kate Lewis She s a burned out charity worker, a self-described stick-in-the-mud and a bookworm. She had a stable, cosy life in London spending her weekends buried in books until Marco came along. He s her UN action man boyfriend and he swept her off her feet at a conference. Over time Kate senses that Marco needs more from life than a pile of books by the bed and a pint in the pub on Fridays. So when a job posting comes up in Panama Central America, one that Marco desperately wants, to show a more adventurous side, she agrees to relocate there with him to start a new life together.
Kate heads off to Panama, with Marco delayed by a humanitarian emergency in Sudan set to join some days later, but when he finally shows up, Marco isn t himself, and within hours of arriving he drops a bombshell, leaving Kate stranded and alone.
Thankfully, just around the corner is an oddball bunch of ex-pats who befriend Kate. With their friendship and support she s soon coming out of her shell, picking herself up and planning her move back to London to start over again. But a stop off in New York on the way
