Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Evie Gallagher is regretting her hasty move into a Dublin care home. She may be seventy-five and recently widowed, but she's absolutely not dead yet. And so, one morning, while the rest of Sheldon Lodge is asleep, Evelyn walks out the front door and never looks back. So begins a road trip that will take Evie first to Liverpool, then on to Brittany, where she buys a camper van and heads south on a Great Adventure. 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 set off in pursuit, following a trail of puzzling text messages. But when Brendan and Maura finally catch up with Evie, there are shocks in store for all of them... because while Brendan may have given up on life and love, Evie Gallagher certainly has not."-- Provided by publisher.
