Multigenerational adventure- Lil’s Bus Trip by Judy Leigh – fantastic read!

It’s always a good time for a road trip…

When 82-year-old Lil decides to book herself, her 65-year-old daughter, Cassie, and her friend Maggie on a bus trip across Europe, she hopes for a little adventure to counteract the monotony of life in sheltered accommodation.

Along with three members of the Salterley Tennis Club and the Jolly Weaver five-a side football team, whose ideas of a good time are rather different to Lil’s and strikingly at odds with each other’s, the merry band of travelers set out on their great adventure.

From moving moments on the beaches of Normandy, outrageous adventures in Amsterdam, to the beauty of Bruges and gastronomic delights of France, the holiday is just the tonic Lil, Maggie and Cassie needed. 

And as the time approaches for them to head home, Lil makes an unexpected discovery – even in her advancing years, men are like buses – there isn’t one for ages then two come along at once. Is Lil ready to share her golden years, and can the ladies embrace the fresh starts that the trip has given them. Or is it just too late to change… 

My Review:

Thanks to Boldwood Book and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this book, here's my honest review.

If you enjoy books with the young at heart
This is a book you really need to start!
With 82 year old Lil taking her daughter and a friend to go
On a bus trip across three countries, just like so!

They're travelling with a young football team
And middle aged tennis players following a dream
What will they find as they travel around?
What life changing discoveries might be found?

Can Maggie break free and leave her hubby at home
Where will Lil's trio decide to go roam?
Who will the visit and who will they meet?
Will they make new friends and have others to greet?

Go on this journey full of fun and laughter
With liaisons and romances - and potential disaster!
Along with places, beer and cider to explore
Maybe the chance to find someone who you'll adore.

It is a story about being brave and bold
Of recognising life doesn't have to stop as you grow old
Old age is just the accumulation of years
And life needs living to the full, facing our joy and fears.
