To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Three interesting seniors on a scenic jaunt. I've driven the routes in this story. It was pleasant to revisit them. Each lady has her secrets, memories and concerns to chew over. Each has to learn how to adjust to the others in their borrowed home. There are many humorous episodes, several scenes to encourage empathy and an on going touch of romantic angst. Some places are described in loving detail, others brushed aside almost. Throughout, the ladies support each other and develop depth to their bonding. Just lacks conviction for me but it is fun with a hint of fairy tale magic and that alone is worth a lot in today's general social climate.
This was a lovely book to remind you life has stops and starts and only over if you stop trying. Refreshing in parts and nice too know getting older doesn't stop your fun. Abrupt ending though but only because there must be a follow up ?????
With a lot of drama in the news, I completely enjoyed this road trip with 3 women who grew into close friends while I drifted around with them learning about places I never knew I would like to visit. It's refreshing to enjoy characters with both character and life experience who take a few chances to grow as they enjoy one another and some amazing communities and sights along back-roads.
Did not know what to expect after reading the synopsis and some of the reviews, but am so glad I got this book. It was such fun and I felt like I was on the road with these women every step of the way. Can't imagine all the wine drinking that was done, though, but when you're in your golden years and on vacation, why not.
The first part of the book was a little slow. Then they took off on their holiday and it became more like a travel journal. But if you stick it out to the last part, the characters develop and so does the story. Overall, it was pretty good.
