We have all dreamed about it: leaving the routine office job in the city and starting again out in the country, doing something we really want to do in a location that gives us the lifestyle we really want. Thousands of Australians have experienced such a seachange, and in this book Cindy Dowling profiles the experiences of 20 such people. Their stories form the heart of this book, from those concerned about urban threats endangering their children to those who wanted to realise a long-held dream, and others who recognised a business opportunity away from the city. As the stories show, such change often demands unexpected hard work and a great deal of money, and it doesn't pay off for everyone. But for most, a smaller pay-packet is compensated by a more relaxed lifestyle, a more satisfying family life and inner peace. In three separate chapters, Cindy Dowling also writes about the whole seachange phenomenon, why it is happening now and who is doing it, and what it involves in practical terms. She describes what to consider if you are contemplating a change, how to avoid the pitfalls and how to make the most of the opportunity.
