Publisher's Summary

Every family has a story....

But for the Guinness family, a happy ending looks out of reach. Olly and Mae's marriage is crumbling, their teenage daughter Evie is on a mission to self-destruct and their beloved Pops is dying of cancer. Their once strong family unit is slowly falling apart.

But Pops has one final gift to offer his beloved family - a ray of hope to cling to. As his life's journey draws to a close, he sends his family on an adventure across Europe in a camper van, guided by his letters, his wisdom and his love.

Because Pops knows that all his family need is time to be together, to find their love for each other and to find their way back home....

Really moving story

I didn’t think I would enjoy this story at the beginning but it is one of the most moving and lovely books I have listened to. It really makes you think about what is important in life and the way the story was shaped was brilliant. I loved it.

Charming story about a family surviving grief, feeling adrift from each other, finding a way to communicate and get back on track. Explore, cry, laugh. Loved it.
