The Secret Life Of Shirley Sullivan

I loved it! I loved Frank. I loved the escape and the road trip but I also really loved the eating of scones and vanilla slices with the sun warming your back and nowhere to be. For me this is absolutely the definition of life lit. I loved that Shirley and Frank weren’t just oldies, they are the main characters, front and centre; people with personalities and histories. I loved it all so much. The road trip through the south coast was one I’m super familiar with, and the fact that they left from Kirrawee was just so cool for me! I loved that you think you are in for a gentle story but that you are left contemplating ageism, women’s rights, dementia and morality and mortality. I loved it all so much
