On the surface, Sylvia Miller has a perfect life. She's married to her college sweetheart, has three great kids, a rewarding career, and wonderful friends. But beneath the appearances, Sylvia is restless. She loves her husband, but wants to see more of the world than their peaceful Michigan town. For years, she's dreamed of the interesting places she wants to visit. Now, their youngest child is grown, and Sylvia is ready for adventure.
Left a penniless orphan, David Miller promised himself his family would nev-er know the same humiliation. For twenty-six years, he and Sylvia have lived frugally, saving for the future. Now, Dave is on the brink of a promotion that will ensure their financial security, but Sylvia wants him to retire and travel with her.
When Dave refuses, Sylvia decides to go alone. But it's a decision that could cost them much more than money.

About the Author
She lives in southwest Michigan with her husband, not far from her children and grandchildren. Current interests, aside from writing, include sewing, crocheting, scrapbooking, and music. A love of travel and an interest in faraway people inspires her to create stories about different cultures.
Stephanie Michels considers herself a "Jill of All Trades" having worked as a computer trainer, advertising copywriter, cosmetologist, person-nel agent, radio DJ, magazine columnist, and a financial planner among other things. She recently left the corporate world to focus on writing full time.
Raised in Michigan, she lived in South Carolina, Missouri, and Germa-ny, before returning to the Mitten State to raise her family. When she isn't writing, you can usually find her reading, playing word games on the comput-er, or spending time with family and friends.
