Synopsis

Like most women, Hephzibah wants to find love. But she has just turned thirty and she's single- again. Looking back on her twenties, the years seem a blur of parties and flings. Being footloose and fancy free was supposed to be fun, but somehow it kept ending in tears. Now she wonders- where was the romance?



This is a story about rediscovering romance. Forget the fly-by-night cads and unreturned calls, Hephzibah decides. Bring on old-fasioned flirting and the art of courtship. So, she takes a year off sex to find love.



She sips cocktails in Manhattan with a dark-eyed musician, and encounters unexpected temptation back in London.



Her quest has life-changing consequences when, after all, she discovers romance is still alive and well.
