A seventy-eight year old romance writer, after living alone for twenty years, re-connects with an old (younger, 65,) email writing pal, and she and Fred move in together. But living in a house with a man twenty four-seven starts to make poisoning him sound viable. In a last ditch effort at saving the relationship and her so-called sanity, she agrees to the purchase of a Vanagon, an old Westfalia hippy van, and together they go on a long, meandering camping trip across the United States and Canada. Each chapter is filled with humor, tragedy and many life lessons.
Whoever has the mistaken idea that life for a woman is pretty much over at 80 needs to read this book.
