About this title:

Synopsis: When young Christy Turner leaves England to embark on her around-the-world journey, she's either a blind optimist or too stupid to be scared by the possible difficulties she may encounter. During her allotted year in America, the first country on her odyssey, Christy learns as much about life, and herself, as the country she has come to explore. It is the early 60s, and Los Angeles offers opportunities, the glamour of show-biz and a safe-haven for a growing gay population. All have a profound effect upon Christy, as do three men - Paul, a considerate neighbor whom the police claim is a criminal; her homosexual 'soul-mate,' Phil; and Joe who doesn't believe in platonic friendships. An absorbing but pitifully-paying job makes saving for the next leg of her journey harder than anticipated. With her simple plan in jeopardy, she must make a difficult choice - to return to the land of her birth, continue with her journey, or make America her home. Christy tells her story with humor and with empathy for the friends who color and enrich a life that is very different to the sheltered existence she had once known.

About the Author: Avril Dobbelaer was born and educated in England. She came to the United States in the early 60s, found a career in the travel business and became a citizen. Retiring at an early age, she began honing her writing skills. In 1992, she moved to South Africa for a new adventure. After her husband's death, she completed a ten-month solo trip around th eworld, finally achieving the goal that had originally brought her to America.
