Summary
When Ruth Morris finds herself moved into Banksia House by her workaholic son Michael, she is eighty-one years young, mourning the loss of her independence, and missing her best friend Gladys terribly. So when she learns Gladys is dying a state over in Brisbane, Ruth is determined to say goodbye. Enlisting the help of her fellow residents, Ruth makes a daring escape from Banksia House alongside Keith, whose previous attempts at breaking out have made him a local legend, and Beryl, whose formidable wit is matched only by her determination to fulfil her husband's dying wish. The journey from Sydney is far from straightforward, featuring grimy hostels, hitchhiking, and a mild case of grand theft. This unlikely trio find themselves on the trip of a lifetime, where new connections blossom amidst the chaos. But the clock is ticking and Gladys awaits - will they make it across the border in time? In this joyous and captivating read, debut author James Roxburgh delivers a heartwarming tale that will have you cheering for Ruth from beginning to end
