Beth Marston was always certain that she was going to be Someone. She was never going to be Ordinary or Boring like other people. But these days Beth's feeling more like a nobody; she's about to turn thirty, she's on her own with a four year old, and she's cleaning other people's houses for a living. Beth knows she wants more from life, but she's so wrapped up in the lives of the people whose houses she cleans, there's just no time. With the perfect Perkins family who seem too good to be true, Dottie, her sprightly senior citizen, who's 82 going on 25, and 'Slimy' Oliver, who has a penchant for wearing very little about the house, she's kept busy enough. But then there is the mysterious Alex Chapman, who Beth has never met. She can't believe he really lives in his spotless, tidy apartment which only takes her a few minutes to pretend to clean. So how else can she spend the four hours she's being paid for in his flat? She does have her own ambitions to fulfil and little time or opportunityand there's a computer just sitting there, never being used. Maybe its time Beth dusted off some of those old dreams?
