(From the publisher):
Miranda Green’s life is an excitement-free zone. Her career has flopped, her children are monsters, and her husband’s impotent. At the tender age of forty, all she’s looking forward to are the menopause and HRT. All this changes when she’s abducted at gunpoint during her weekly visit to the supermarket. While she’s being held hostage by an armed robber, Miranda’s old life seems like paradise. But when she finally gets home she’s shocked to find that her family seem happier without her. Unobserved, Miranda flees back to her gunman. Offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance at creating a completely new life for herself, she decides to take it. Whatever the cost.
