Running away never occurred to Kate Adams, until her husband Clifford inadvertently let it slip that he had had a fling with a woman half his age. Kate was devastated; she had trusted him! But what could she do? She couldn't leave; her job was to care for their children while Cliff traveled all over the world, finding exclusive stories to enhance his career in journalism. When a trip meant covering a news story in Florida, Kate would ask, Can I go with you this time, please? Clifford would playfully pat her on the head, smile and say, Katie, I'll be so busy, you wouldn't enjoy it. Did he really think I couldn't enjoy sunny Florida in the winter, by myself? It was after their four children finished college and were deep in their chosen careers, that Kate, with Clifford's permission, took a long, life-changing trip across the country in her car; a trip destined to change the way she saw her life; change the way she wanted to live, sending Kate into unforeseen and challenging directions that neither she r her husband had ever expected.
