Sapphy Mitchell needs a holiday.

Ten years of sleeping with the same nightmare has taken its toll on her health, her relationships, and most significantly, her ability to live the life that she was given. Twice.

With her parents' shared sixtieth birthday celebration just one month away, she sees it as the perfect opportunity to test out her hard earned confidence, and so, armed with a suitcase full of self-help guides and enough sedatives to drop an elephant, she manages to get herself on to a flight, back home to Australia.
