This is a book for anyone who has ever thought "What if?" A true story about a woman who dared to follow her dreams...Jessica Fox was living in Hollywood, an ambitious 26-year-old filmmaker with a high-stress job at NASA.
Working late one night, craving another life, she was seized by a moment of inspiration and tapped "second hand bookshop Scotland" into Google.
She clicked on the first link she saw. A month later, she arrived 2,000 miles across the Atlantic in Wigtown, on the west coast of Scotland, and knocked on the door of the bookshop she would be living in for the next month...The rollercoaster journey that ensued - taking in Scottish Hanukkah, yoga on Galloway's West Coast, and a waxing that she will never forget - would both break and mend her heart.
It would also teach her that sometimes we must have the courage to travel the path less taken.
Only then can we truly become the writers of our own stories.
