What happens when your story doesn't end the way you thought it would?
When the dream life you have been working towards becomes something you must walk away from?
When you swap a Hollywood marriage and a LA mansion with waterside views, for a little attic flat shared only with your daughter, beneath the star-filled sky of deepest North London?
When you find yourself not lonely, but elated - elated to be alone with yourself, who you genuinely thought you might never get to see again?
When, after a life guided by romantic obsession, you decide to turn your back not only on marriage, but all romantic and sexual attachments?
Alluring, shocking, welcome and wonderful
