520 "Ava Wilder's home in small-town Iowa is her sanctuary. A
talented sketch artist with severe agoraphobia, Ava spends
her days drawing a far more adventurous life than her
invisible disability allows. Until she receives a package
from London, explaining that she has inherited her Aunt
Beverly's entire estate--on condition that she lives in
Bev's West End flat for a year. Once overseas, Ava wonders
if she's simply swapped one prison for another. The
streets and shops are intimidating, and Bev's home appears
to be a drop-in center for local eccentrics. Worst of all,
Bev left a list of impossible provisos to be overseen by
her quirky, attractive solicitor. Ava is expected to go
out--to experience clubs, pubs, and culture; to visit Big
Ben, Hyde Park, and the London Eye. After years of viewing
the world through a pane of glass, she's at the messy,
complicated center of it. As exhilarated as she is
terrified, will she be able to step up, step out, and
claim the life she was meant for?"--Publisher's website.
