The Golden Girls' Getaway
The perfect feel-good, funny read from USA Today bestseller Judy Leigh
The most uplifting book you’ll read this year!
'Judy’s done it again. Every woman over a certain age should read this wonderful book.' Jennifer Bohnet
It has been a long and lonely year for neighbours Vivienne, Mary and Gwen. All ladies of a ‘certain age’, their lockdown experience has left them feeling isolated and alone. They are in desperate need of a change.
Things start to look up however, when Gwen comes up with a plan to get them out of London by borrowing a motor home. In no time at all the ladies are on the road – away from the city, away from their own four walls, and away from their worries.
The British countryside has never looked more beautiful. As they travel from Stonehenge to Dartmoor, from the Devon and Cornish coasts to the Yorkshire moors, gradually the years fall back, and the three friends start to imagine new futures with no limitations.
And as their journey continues and their friendships deepen, and while the seaside views turn into glorious mountains and moors, Mary, Vivienne and Gwen learn to smile again, to laugh again, and maybe even to love again. Now they can believe that the best is still to come…
Funny, joyful and with a spring in its step that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French and Cathy Hopkins.

What a lovely story.
The pandemic in its later phases and the reemergence of individuals into the wider world was sweetly, poignantly well done.
The adventures of reaching for connections and relearning to cradle hope for the future was cathartic to my heart in a very real way.
The giggle/snorting laughs were good, too!
Thank you for this book.
I really enjoyed the book. It was modern, during the opening after Covid. I wondered if I could do a trip like they did. I guess it must be some peoples dream getaway after being confined for over a year for Covid. Here’s to anyone who has the courage, time, and wherewithal to do this.
