After a painful divorce and with her 50th birthday approaching, a successful but burned-out writer takes three months off to travel through the United States. All alone: The plan is to reconnect with her inner voice. To rediscover herself not as a mother or a wife, not as a friend and maybe not even as a writer but simply as a human being. But her inner voice says loud and clear: „I don’t want to be alone anymore!“
In order to restore her belief in love, she visits all the happy couples she knows. Couples who couldn’t be more different from each other but they all have their own secret to share. And who knows, maybe their happiness will rub off on her – and she will fall in love again somewhere along the road... But life has other plans for her.
From Maine to Louisiana, from New York to Santa Cruz, each place, each couple teaches her something new. How did she end up being such a cliché? What happened to her dreams? And why is she always so tired?
But along the ways she rediscovers the freedom of being in her own company. While she's at, she could finally learn how to dance... Or how to enjoy dinner alone in a fancy hotel bar... Consult with a Voodo Priestess, go horseback riding... Each adventure brings her closer to herself.
Along the way she finally comes to terms with her past. And yes, in the end, she does fall in love – though not with a man, but with a tiny little house in Santa Fe. And a whole new future opens up for her...
