'Brilliantly funny, emotional and uplifting' Miranda Dickinson




Heartwarming, hilarious and fun - the perfect read for anyone who loved Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, A Man Called Ove, Ruth Jones and JoJo Moyes.



Evie Gallagher is regretting her hasty move into a care home. She may be seventy-five and recently widowed, but she's absolutely not dead yet. And so, one morning, Evie walks out of Sheldon Lodge and sets off on a Great Adventure across Europe.


But not everyone thinks Great Adventures are appropriate for women of Evie's age, least of all her son Brendan and his wife Maura, who follow a trail of puzzling text messages to bring her home.


When they finally catch up with her, there are shocks in store . . . because while Brendan may have given up on life and love, Evie certainly has not.

'Brimming with warmth, humour and a love of life . . . a wonderful escapade' Fiona Gibson, bestselling author of The Woman Who Upped and Left



'I absolutely loved everything about this book... 5* out of 5*' The Ginger Book Geek


'By its end I'd laughed, cringed, felt really concerned, giggled, cried (rather a lot) and emerged into the rosier future with a heart broken, mended, and singing with joy' Being Anne


'5 stars! I Loved Evie . . . She has a Passion and Zest for life... I want to go travelling with her! . . . If you read one book that is a little different this month let it be A Grand Old Time! You won't regret It!' Dash Fan
