あらすじ・解説

Tess and Orla have been best friends throughout most of their adult lives. So when life gave them lemons and their loved ones let them down, they pooled their resources and bought a dressmakers shop on the corner of Penny Lane. And they’ve been doing just fine ever since.

But one day, while studying her tired eyes and shapeless figure in the mirror, 62-year-old Tess realised that she doesn’t want her life to be just fine anymore. She wants it to be extraordinary. For as long as she can remember she’s put everyone else first. Now she wants to rediscover herself - and experience the kind of whirlwind adventure that will have the power make her smile when she’s confined to the armchair of a retirement home.

With the encouragement of fun-loving and quirky Orla, Tess joins an over-the-hill dating agency, and the two friends book a singles cruise around the Mediterranean. And that’s when their adventure of a lifetime really begins.... 

A totally uplifting, heartwarming, hilarious listen about embracing the moment, learning to love again and the joy of second chances. Perfect for fans of The Kicking the Bucket List and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.

Just OK.

As chick-lit novels go, this is an acceptable one. At least the subject matter is original, in that it deals with older women (not the usual, cliche' 20-something space-cadet girl who fumbles around until Mr.-Right-and-Together comes to make her life great).
The end felt really rushed; while other parts (such as the description of a trip to Greece, for example) were unnecessarily long and wearisome.
The thing that bothered me the most was the reading style of the performance. Judy Sweeny syllabicates her words and slows her sentences as if she were an old librarian reading to three-year-olds. It ruined the enjoyment of listening to the book for me.

A little boring

I have listened to all of the author’s books and really enjoyed them. Unfortunately, this was not as good. I kept waiting for something to happen and it never did.

Fun and Light Hearted

I could identify well with Tess. The trials and tribulations of online dating. The joy of travel. And the gift of finding yourself.

Exciting,and intriguing….

It was very exciting to be on a journey of discovery with Tess and her funny friend. As she lost weight and found herself, so too her confidence soared. I could not wait to get to the next chapter …..disappointed when it ended so abruptly… hopefully there is a sequel…

Another Enjoyable One by This Author

Dee MacDonald does not disappoint. She really portrays the real thoughts going on in a sixty plus year old mind and heart. Laughed as usual, too. We need books for this age group.

Disappointed

So disappointed in this audio book! Loved The Runaway Wife and The Getaway Girls, really good listens, great narration, lots of laugh out loud moments. The Silver Ladies didn’t flow, couldn’t really follow the story, had to grit my teeth and stick it out just to complete the book! The narration was terrible, accents appalling, pronunciation was laughable! Sounded like it was read by Anita Manning off Bargain Hunt!! So disappointed!

Drivel.

Drivel.......hard to think of something positive about this book. Don’t bother. Runaway wife is so different as if not written by the same person.

I liked it

Good storyline until the predictable ending.

I liked the characters and was interested what happened to them.
