'''Some kinds of adventure are always worth the risk..."'

'What could possibly drive a latte-loving city girl to throw out all her new shoes and move into the passenger seat of a beat-up Mazda? When fate decided to connect an inner-city journalist with an unlikely comedian at a wacky astrology night, a few hours was all it took to fall in love. What follows is a love story like no other, set against the backdrop of the uncompromising Australian landscape.

'From supping with bikies in the desert to filing fashion columns from skimpy-clad pubs in the goldfields, Love and Other U-Turns is an exploration of the balance between passion and security, love and freedom, and what it really takes to live your dreams.

'If you' ve ever wondered what it's like for a girl to hit the dirt roads of Australia with a laptop full of hope and a hair straightener in the glove box, this book is for you.' (From the publisher's website.)
