AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Ginny and Barb might be mother and daughter but as far as Ginny is concerned they are very different. At thirty-three, Ginny has her own apartment in New York, a prestigious job in an advertising agency and an on-again/off-again romance with Simon. Ginny sees herself as a realist and resents her mother for allowing her to dream big as a child. Things might have worked out ... until Simon cheated on her, her boss fired her and emotionally burnt out Ginny decides to take a break. She doesn't consider crossing the globe to visit a friend in Australia for three months running away. But then she meets Lachlan and is forced to choose between career or love, New York or Melbourne. Her mother and best friend have their opinions about what she should do but Ginny is determined to make her own way ... not realising that everything she does is shaped by her lifelong insecurities.

'Spinning Out is a moving and insightful novel about realising that no one life ever goes to plan and the unexpected can bring devastating tragedy just as easily as the greatest joy.' (From the publisher's website.)
