Description

It is 1975 and Matthew is driving his mum, dad and aunt to a very special occasion in Rome. Innocents abroad, they are experiencing life on the Continent for the first time as they motor through France and Italy.

Propelled onwards to Rome in this brief odyssey, the earlier life journeys of Nora, John, Kathleen and Matthew unfold. For all the ups and downs that they have experienced, these are generous and expansive personalities that you will want to share the journey with. Will the vicissitudes of life, love and past heartaches dampen their appreciation of the present? And is it the destination that is so important or the journey they have all taken to get there?

I enjoyed the book a lot more than I thought I was going to. I felt that the characters were written well and even though I haven’t experienced a lot of what occurred in the book, I really felt a sense of empathy for everyone.
