A poignant ode to love and the memories that make a well-lived life, from the author of THE SINGLE LADIES OF JACARANDA RETIREMENT VILLAGE.
September, 2020
A poignant ode to love and the memories that make a well-lived life, from the author of THE SINGLE LADIES OF JACARANDA RETIREMENT VILLAGE As the wife of retired ship's doctor Dr Henry Parker, Evelyn is living out her twilight years aboard the Golden Sunset. Every night she dresses for dinner - gown, tiara, runners - and regales her fellow passengers with stories of a glamorous life travelling the world in luxury. The crew treat her with deference. And forbearance. But when Henry goes missing, Evelyn sets off to search every part of the grand ocean liner to find him - casino, nightclub and off-limits areas included. The misadventures, scandalous behavior and new friends that make up her search are all news to Evelyn, though. If only she could remember recent events as clearly as she can recall the first time she met Henry on a passage from England to Australia in 1953 and fell in love . . . Why is it so hard to forget some things and so hard to remember others? And where is Henry? Praise for The Single Ladies of Jacaranda Retirement Village 'A gentle, warm-hearted book that had me rooting for all the characters and laughing out loud' - Libby Page, author of The Lido 'Funny, insightful and deliciously refreshing . . . the most heartwarming book we've read in a long time' - Woman's Weekly 'The perfect blend of funny and moving' - Natasha Lester, author of The Paris Seamstress
