Monica McInerney returns with her much-anticipated new novel The Trip of a Lifetime.
The wilful and eccentric Lola Quinlan is off on the trip of a lifetime, taking her beloved granddaughter and great-granddaughter with her. More than sixty years after emigrating to Australia, she's keeping a secret promise to return to her Irish homeland. But as she embarks on her journey, the flamboyant Lola is still hiding the hurtful reasons she left Ireland in the first place. What - and who - will be waiting for her on the other side of the world? A big, bold, beautiful book about the light and dark times of life, and all the wonders in between. This is a delightful, emotional story about a colourful and huge-hearted family that you'll want to call your own.
