Fun book recommendation of the day
The main character in the book is Connie who is tired of solving one family crisis after another which usually involves her grandchildren. Her husband Roger never bothers to get involved with anything and spends all day at his beloved golf course. One evening, while mashing the potatoes for dinner, Connie realizes that she has been taken for granted by her husband and family and decides she has had enough. She decides to leave it all and run away. So Connie packs a bag, gets in her little green car and drives off. She starts a journey from England to Scotland. In this unexpected adventure, she finally begins to rediscover herself and starts to wonder, will she ever be ready to return home? Or will this summer change her life forever?
Her journey to unknown and to unplanned roads lead her to meet some old and new friends. It takes her to some unusual protests, and to a movie set. There is a great deal of humor in the situations she finds herself in, along with the emotions and love for her family. The Runaway Wife is a funny, inspiring, and joyously uplifting novel about being true to yourself.
