"This is one of those wonderful "bucket list" type of books where you don't know whether to laugh or cry. Joanne's story is heartbreaking yet, through it all there is a serenity, a search for happiness and joy that transcends every other consideration. If you didn't know she had a terminal illness, her account of the family trek around Europe would be inspirational enough, hilarious at times, desperate at times, yet the knowledge doesn't cloud the vision - of a determined woman who wanted to spend her last precious times with her family. Absolutely terrific."  –  Books Monthly

"A v
ery fun book to read, with many situations being very recognizable, bringing a smile to my face. Highly recommended!"  –, Customer Review

This book is a really good read, with a feel-good factor and some laugh out loud moments. On one level it is a funny, light-hearted, and enjoyable account of a family trip around Europe. But when the author writes about her reasons behind taking the trip, it gives the book an added poignancy, and left me in awe of her strength of character. It's a book that ticked all the boxes - easy to read, funny and entertaining with a real human element too. I recommend it."   Amazon, Customer Review
