When Lorraine finds out her husband has been having an affair with her best friend, she grabs her passport, clears out half of their bank account, and takes off to Thailand. As Lori wracks up the miles island hopping, she comes to terms with the end of her marriage and the start of a whole new life. She is keen to embrace all the adventures she can - learning to scuba dive, rescue turtles and even finding some romance. This escapist read comes across more like a travel diary than an intricately plotted story but it’s actually all the more richer for it. I very much enjoyed vicariously living through Lori’s travels.
