My Favourite Mistake

Anna has just lost her taste for the Big Apple…

Anna has a life to envy. An apartment in New York. A well-meaning (too well-meaning?) partner. And a high-flying job in beauty PR.

Who wouldn’t want all that? Anna – it turns out.

Turning a minor mid-life crisis into a major life event she bins the lot, heads back to Ireland, and gets a PR job for a super-high-end coastal retreat.
Tougher than it sounds. Newsflash: the locals hate it.
So much so, there have been threats – and violence.

Anna, however, worked in the beauty industry.
There’s no ugliness she hasn’t seen. No wrinkle she can’t smooth over.
Anna’s got this.

Until she discovers that leaving New York doesn’t mean escaping her mistakes.
Once upon a time she’d had a best friend.
Once upon a time she’d loved a man.
Now she has neither.
And now she has to face them.

We all make mistakes.
But when do we stop making the same one over and over again?
