This is essentially a rites of passage story about a woman trying to find herself after a lifetime of looking after others. It has all the best elements – love, a serious illness and a road trip.
It was achingly moving in places and wickedly funny in others. I immediately identified with the lead character and recognised a lot of the reasons for her standoffishness.
I really enjoyed this and it grabbed me from the first page, encouraging me to keep on going until the very end, just to find out what happened next. I understand this is the authors first book, well done! May we please have more!
