A Grand Old Time
by Judy Leigh




Overview -

'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.

'Lovely . . . a book that assures that life is far from over at seventy' Cathy Hopkins, bestselling author of The Kicking the Bucket List

'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
