After the breakdown of his childless marriage of over twelve years to the beautiful Belinda, Gary is determined never to fall in love again.
The only marriage Gary will enter into, is a marriage of convenience, get the hell out of England and as far away from his beautiful ex-wife and ex-home as possible.
His destination: Austin. Texas.
His plans are jeopardised when he strikes up an online conversation with Susie, a divorcee with two children.
Suddenly, Gary is riddled with doubt and after nightly chats with his new-found friend, they decide to meet, and against his better judgement, Gary falls deeply in love with her. Suddenly, he is torn between his new life in Texas and his new love. Just as he becomes certain that his love for the pretty stranger outweighs his yearning to leave the UK, fate deals a bitter blow. He is diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumour and without giving her the real reason, decides to end the relationship.
Five years later, Susie learns the truth, and Gary finds a surprise waiting for him in Florida.
