Description
"An endearing and humane story about a family and its sticky web of secrets and misunderstandings . . . one of those rare books you could recommend to anyone and know that they'll love it."
-The Australian Women's Weekly
Harriet Turner knows all about journeys. She's arranged hundreds of them for her family's travel agency. Now Harriet is joining her adopted sister, Lara, to lead a group through the Cornish countryside. But when Lara fails to appear at the airport as planned, Harriet finds herself in uncharted territory and suddenly alone with a busload of eccentric seniors. As the tour wends its way through the picturesque landscape, Harriet must uncover her sister's whereabouts and confront long-held family secrets involving Lara's arrival twenty-five years ago . . . not to mention keeping track of more baggage-real and emotional-than she ever expected.
"With every book, Monica McInerney becomes more skilled at juggling plot complexities and giving depth to her characters. . . . Perfect for] weekend reading."
-Marie Claire (Australia)
"A book to treasure that is clever, amusing and heart-warmingly touching."
-Woman's Day (Australia)
