She needed to find her bliss

Habitual accommodator Tessa Wright is a mess. And no amount of diplomacy will get back what she wants: Her swishy banking job. Her AWOL husband. The comfortable—albeit lackluster—life she once slipped into like a shadow.

Now faced with forging a new life map, Tessa agrees to share a palatial Costa Rican vacation home with Kate, her former boss. Could it be the one-way path to bliss they both crave?

But the gorgeous Playa Blanca house perched over the ocean hides more revelations—and inhabitants—than Tessa ever anticipated. Suddenly she must make a decision that teaches her an age-old truth she never would have learned back home: Sometimes achieving happiness means following your own compass…no matter where it takes you.

In Detroit even though they were part of the downsizing team and been local anomalies by loyally staying at the Midwest National Bank for seventeen years, Tessa Wright and her friend and boss Kate are fired by the corporate angel of death Simon Pearson. On top of that Tessa¿s spouse Jack has given up on her as she has neglected him while doing the bank¿s downsizing mission for the past few months Jack is missing. --- Tessa and Kate, who also has male problems, are depressed and need a life make-over to find a modicum of happiness that neither had during the banking era of their lives. They head to Costa Rica for some R&R at a friend¿s vacation home. In Playa Blanca they meet two squatters, who have deeper problems and issues than the Americans as Tessa and Kate share this abode with these two women, they learn to live. --- OFF THE MAP is an intriguing comparative look between the downsized lives of the two Americans against that of the squatters. Each of the four females seem unique with differing personifies so that the audience understands what motivates each one. Comparing the depth of problems is a two edged sword as perspective is fascinating to observe but also overwhelming as none of the female foursome is deeply exposed to the reader. Still this is a fine tale that showcases the relativity of tribulations.
