When Lillian and Audrey hatch a plot to escape from Tranquil Meadows Nursing Home, "borrow" a car, and spend their hastily planned vacation time driving to destinations west, they aren't fully aware of the challenges they will face. All they know is that the warm days of August call to them, and the need to escape the daily routines and humiliations of nursing home life has become overwhelming. But their trip is almost over before it begins, until they meet up with the unsuspecting Rayne, a young hitchhiker. As Lillian and Audrey try to take back the control that time and dementia has taken from them, Rayne realizes the truth of their situation. But it's too late - he has fallen under the spell of these two funny, brave women and is willing to be a part of their adventure, wherever it leads them.

This is a great choice for a summer read: road trip, two feisty senior citizens, handsome young man driving, what could go wrong?

Quite a bit, actually, if we're talking Lillian and Audrey, on the lam from their Ottawa nursing home.

The book succeeds quite admirably at delving into the internal worlds of two women who are only seen as patients. When we are believed to be a "self" only through the action of our memory, what happens when that memory begins to fail? This is an issue that Hepburn is addressing here. It's a fun read, but anticipate some depth and some pathos along with the hijinks.
