Publisher's Summary

The most uplifting audiobook you’ll listen to this year!

It has been a long and lonely year for neighbours Vivienne, Mary and Gwen. All ladies of a ‘certain age’, their lockdown experience has left them feeling isolated and alone. They are in desperate need of a change.

Things start to look up however, when Gwen comes up with a plan to get them out of London by borrowing a motor home. In no time at all the ladies are on the road - away from the city, away from their own four walls and away from their worries.

The British countryside has never looked more beautiful. As they travel from Stonehenge to Dartmoor, from the Devon and Cornish coasts to the Yorkshire moors, gradually the years fall back and the three friends start to imagine new futures with no limitations.

And as their journey continues and their friendships deepen and while the seaside views turn into glorious mountains and moors, Mary, Vivienne and Gwen learn to smile again, to laugh again and maybe even to love again. Now they can believe that the best is still to come....

Funny, joyful and with a spring in its step that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French and Cathy Hopkins.

Great Book!

I love Judy Leigh's books. As a 62-year-old single woman, I find it so refreshing to find books with older characters who have dreams, fall in love, develop fast friendships and experience all of the things that most books and movies seem to believe only happen to younger people. Phyllida Nash does an excellent job giving life and a distinctive voice to each character.
