Anna Marcus is successful in the world of computers, but not as accomplished when it comes to lasting relationships. Which would be fine … if she wasn't also completely and madly in love with the idea of being in love and being loved in return.
Anna's growing fear in life is that the love she imagines doesn't exist at all. That she is waiting for something that isn't even real.
When she meets Justin — smart and caring, with an unforgettable smile — he is a perfect candidate for her fairytale life. It makes Anna start to wonder if there is hope after all. But if Anna's trust in love isn't a big enough obstacle, Justin's girlfriend certainly is. That, and the fact that he lives in another state … 500 miles from Anna's Melbourne life.
When disaster strikes Anna's family, she travels to Sydney to help. Lonely and bitter, she finds herself on love's doorstep, questioning everything she thought she understood about the heart, and what she really wants.
Anna is about to learn that not all journeys can be measured by distance. It's the bumps in the road which are the hardest to travel and overcoming them is the true journey.
