This is one of those surprise books. I was surprised I enjoyed it. My first thought was it was a "chick" book. (Sigh) I know not exactly politically correct but nevertheless how I see it. Regardless of description this book was excellent. It describes a relationship between a granddaughter and grandfather.
George is in his eighties and is in poor health. He feels smothered by his daughter. He and his best buddy Charles embark on a life changing trip. Meanwhile the story splits to George's granddaughter and her frustration with her internship on a film.
This is not an action adventure, don't expect guns, knives or fights. Do expect to be moved by a delightful story.
I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
