When Jay's husband lands a diplomatic job in Warsaw, she jumps at the opportunity to escape her predictable life in Canberra for a three-year adventure in the heart of central Europe. Jay throws herself into life as a diplomatic wife - and between glamorous cocktail parties and ambassadorial hard slog, Jay sets out to get know quirky, difficult, fascinating Poland. It's a challenge even for an intrepid traveller with a willing heart. Not to mention the marriage that increasingly doesn't look like it will survive its third Polish winter.
