Description:
Douglas Petersen understands his wife's need to 'rediscover herself' now that their son is leaving home. He just thought they'd be doing their rediscovering together. So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over again. The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary planned and printed. What could possibly go wrong?

A poignant but at the same time hilarious account of a couple's attempt to enjoy a final Grand Tour type holiday in Europe with their son before he goes to university and they divorce. The couple have been together for twenty years, and Douglas thinks that all is well, but his wife Connie clearly thinks that the marriage has run its course. The story is very cleverly told, interweaving their life history with the diary of their trip, which takes many twists and turns which the highly-organised Douglas has not anticipated. The author's perceptive eye picks up telling details which convey exactly the situation at hand, or how a character is feeling, in just a few words. Although it is sad, it really does make the reader laugh out loud at regular intervals, and I would recommend this book to everyone without hesitation. Our group gave it an average score of 8.

Reading Group review. A convoluted love story without romance. A very well crafted book.
