Meredith Cunningham had led a charmed life and been financially supported by her parents through private school, University and well into adulthood. She had established herself as a successful businesswoman who expected everyone to do what she wanted. This had worked quite well for her until her parents, Ken and Margaret, made a life changing decision. They had their property on the market and the price would be sufficient to buy a luxury motor home in which to travel around Australia. They felt it was time they did what they wanted to do, not what their daughter thought they should. The idea of supporting herself financially was not attractive to Meredith and she set out to find someone who would keep her in the manner she thought she deserved. Foster Browne was chosen and pursued by her because he was good-looking, successful and they made a handsome couple who would be featured in the social pages. Foster did not know the real Meredith and was dazzled by her sophistication and immaculate presentation. Her relentless spending caused him great distress and he made a decision that would end this relationship. Meredith then found herself facing a lifestyle she had not even known existed nor did she have the skills to cope with her new reality.
