When Alice met Nash, she fell head over heels. Two years later, she can’t quite remember what it was that had seemed so brilliant about him. All they do is argue – especially about money. In a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship, they agree to leave rainy England behind and emigrate to Australia.
But when Alice finds out that Nash has been unfaithful, their plans are ruined and she decides to go to Australia alone. Packing what she can into four suitcases, she heads to Bondi to stay with her cousin.
Australia is a very strange place where everything seems upside down and anything over two syllables is abbreviated. Will Alice ever be able to lose her English inhibitions and relax into the Aussie way of life? Can she ever find a proper job? And, more importantly, will she be able to control herself around Joel, her extremely attractive Australian cousin…?
