Life begins at 75.
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.
This book was out of my comfort zone, it was not one of those contemporary young adult books I usually read.
This was something different.
Evie is so full of life and passion.
She leaves the elder home and embraces on a trip to France.
She is 75 and is just now beginning to enjoy her life the fullest.
Brendan and Maura is this couple who is stuck in a rut.
They don’t know how they feel about each other after years of marriage and they feel like something is missing from their lives.
I would say I did sorta see the end coming and yet I didn't.
I wish I didn’t happen.
Overall I give this book 4 stars out of 5
It was a nice change to read.
And I wish Evie were my grandmother or perhaps I wish I could be her when I am 75.
