Take Flight - Josie's journey #Wattys2017
Ranked: #248 in ChickLit
Josie had it all sorted out. Everything that happened in her life, happened due to a strict plan. There was no space for the Unforeseen, especially not in her vocabulary.
Working a fulfilling career in a day-care center, she'd been saving all her money the past few years for her future with Dominic. Their relationship was just as ordinary as her life, part and parcel of her daily routine.
But when Dominic leaves her out of the blue, none of Josie's plans seem to work out anymore. The future that has been planned in the minutest details is suddenly replaced by a blank space. Realising just how dependent on Dominic she was, Josie finds herself in a position, she never wanted to be put in.
She becomes a stranger to herself, not knowing who she is or wants to be. Left without a single plan, a single dream for her future. Aimless and lost in her own life.
Broken-hearted, Josie comes to the only decision that seems tolerable at this very moment: Escape. Escape from her life, escape from herself.
With only a suitcase and her savings, savings wasted on her lost love, Josie starts traveling around Europe.
With the help of new friends and a charming man from England, Josie slowly rediscovers herself and the meaning of love.
