Her husband's a workaholic, her kids are growing up - the time has come for Kate to follow some of her own dreams ...
It seems like only yesterday that Kate Cavendish was one of the most well-regarded photographers in town. Then marriage and children came along, and Kate's career went from backburner to blindsided.
A chance meeting with a former colleague has Kate dipping her toes back into the workforce and starting to fantasise about new avenues in life. It's time, she decides, to balance the drudgery of 'home duties' with some glamour and fun. The idea of collaborating with appreciative colleagues rather than a recalcitrant, eye-rolling teenage daughter and an often-absentee husband sounds like bliss.
We join Kate on her sometimes scary, sometimes exhilarating, always challenging adventures as she decides what she really wants to do next in her life.
