A Grand Old Time by Judy Leigh


This is the second book by this author that I've read.  I posted about the first here - Heading Over The Hill.


This one also had as the main character a woman of about 75.  She regrets going into a rest home and runs away.  Evie is a fantastic old lady.


She ends up in France having adventures in a camper van.  The other strand to the story is her adult son who is having marriage difficulties but doesn't know what to do about it.  He goes looking for his mother following the small clues she leaves – he believes he will be a welcome rescuer.


See any problem with this plan?


An enjoyable read all round.  Some sad elements. I agree completely with the reviewer who said 'Heartwarming, hilarious and fun'
