Would you still be the same person? When Chloe is forced to leave behind her cosmopolitan life in London to move to a small island in the Irish Sea, she is faced with a myriad of challenges. How will she and her family adapt to island life? Will she find new friends? What about her career? Most importantly, will the love of Chloe and her husband survive their amorous adventures? Join Chloe on her journey through her past and her present to make sense of her life, herself, her hopes, and dreams amid her personal upheaval. The Cosmopolitan Islander is a thrilling novel about female roles and identity in the 21st century - and about how the journey of life can change your destination in the most unexpected way. It takes the reader from the Isle of Man and around the world, traversing the timeless themes of love, desire, family, friendship, power, and ambition. The strong female protagonist, Chloe, is in her thirties with globetrotting running in her blood. She is confronted by three main challenges: Relocation - its impact on her family's stability, social network, and sense of belonging; Ambition - materialised by her local job hunt and career versus her struggles with balancing motherhood and society's expectations; Desire - the love of Chloe and her husband is tested by their life changes and choices. The Cosmopolitan Islander is a must read for the modern woman - and man; for expats and others in cultural encounters; for islanders and globetrotters; and for anyone in-between.
