4. 'The Summer Before The Dark'
Kate Brown is an attractive, happy suburban wife that was seemingly content with her life, until one summer everything changed. Her kids have left the house, her marriage became stagnant, and so she decided to change her life and enter into an affair with a younger man, traveling with him across Spain and Turkey, finding liberation. On her journey back home Brown met a younger woman who was so free and alive that it encouraged her to seek even more independence - but this will embark her on a darker, more dangerous journey.
