*A Florida woman’s architect husband is hired to help rebuild a ghost town.
It's midnight and Lydia Taylor is on the beach, tipsy, in a gold bikini goofing off in the Atlantic Ocean. Her husband Joe and some of their close friends are with her as they all battle in a reckless game of drunken football.
Another one of their wild going-away parties. Miami. Lydia loves Miami but she really loves her hometown of Orlando. That's why she’s dreading the fact that they have to leave tomorrow: to Dayton, Ohio!
She still can't fathom this reality. Trading in the beach for a ghost town? But her husband is a spunky architect and was hired by a Wall Street billionaire to help rebuild the stricken city of Dayton, Ohio. So by default, life as she knows it is now dead: of course she has to go with him! She can’t stay in Florida partying and tanning while Joe puts in ten hour days only to come home to an empty house. So off to Dayton they go. And for ten years!
Suddenly her life is a downhill roller coaster as she’s haunted with pregnancy fears, writer’s block, and homesickness all the while trying to be supportive to her loving husband in a dangerous city where not everyone is so optimistic about making it better. Where not everyone believes…
Lydia witnesses the beauty of Dayton’s future but its tragic present has her wondering more than once if it’s too late to even save Dayton.
And what about her own life? Is it too late to turn it around?
When does it become too late?
I’m Not A Housewife! is the humorous journey of a woman scrambling to get serious about her career again. To prove that she isn’t a total loser. Because being a wife without a career—what does that make her? A housewife?
