Field Notes on Love

Being born as the youngest of sextuplets means you have a lot of company. Add to that the British press following you and your siblings every move and it’s no wonder that Hugo can’t wait to get away. Together with his girlfriend Margaret he’s about to embark on a cross country trip across the USA.

But Hugo is blindsided when Margaret breaks up with him.  He’s left with their nonrefundable, nontransferable tickets and reservations, all booked with Margaret’s name.
What’s a boy to do?

“Seeking Margaret Campbell”.  It’s time to find an alt-Margaret to make the trip.

When Mae (legal name Margaret Campbell) finds Hugo’s ad online the timing could not be better. She’s just been rejected from film school and an escape from her regular life makes perfect sense.

A cross-country train trip with a complete stranger might not seem like the best idea but for Hugo and Mae it’s about to become the perfect meet cute.
