Flee, Fly, Flown is a book I picked up without any expectation and it blew me away with it's simplicity and depth.

This book was a delightful trip,  although it was a bit heartbreaking at times.   Lillian and Audrey are living in Tranquil Meadows nursing home, an Alzheimer’s care facility in Ottawa.  They are fast friends and both are disillusioned by their living arrangements.  When they decide to break out of the home and go on a vacation things start to go down hill quite quickly when they “borrow” a car and soon realize that Lillian really doesn’t remember how to drive.  When they ask an unsuspecting young homeless man to be their driver, the trip is back on.  There were many hilarious moments in this book along with the seriousness of a dreadful disease,  but as I listened to it, I had a smile on my face almost the entire time.  With a perfect narrator and a lovable cast of characters, this is one road trip I wish I was a part of!

What a great story of friendship. Being a long-term care worker, I now have a better understanding of how people must feeling living in a nursing home. This story has helped me have more compassion for the patients. This book did have some laugh out loud moments.
