When Ruby and Angela embark on a Grey Nomads road trip, the last thing they expect is a tiny stowaway; one who will turn them from unsuspecting tourists into wanted kidnappers and land them in a world of trouble. As their leisurely retirement plans unravel, Angela's relationship with her brother Bernard goes from bad to worse. Bernard has his own problems to contend with. Adrift in life, his career as a news presenter has been reduced to opening fetes and reading Voss as an audio book (a seemingly impossible task). His troubles are compounded when his wife starts dating a younger man and a drink-driving incident turns him into a celebrity offender. As Angela and Ruby set about repairing burnt bridges and helping their unexpected guest, and Bernard attempts to patch together his broken life, they discover that even after a lifetime of experience, you're never too old to know better. A warm, funny, sharply observed story about aging disgracefully and loving the one you're with. PRAISE 'Laugh out loud funny. If you love characters of a certain age behaving very, very badly - read this book.' Victoria Purman, bestselling Australian author of The Land Girls 'A great debut novel packed with crazy characters, this is an entertaining story of growing older and coming up trumps.' Tricia Stringer, bestselling author of The Model Wife 'Olivia Wearne's compelling and witty novel unveils the frailties and passions of a complex array of characters...The perfect book to take on your own Grand Tour.' - Jane Coverdale, author.
