Read full description of the books:
On her way to the airport to board a plane to England to share an 80th birthday lunch with the Queen, Georgie Witley accidentally drives her car off the road into a deep ravine. With the accident unwitnessed, and no one to know she is missing, Georgie lay broken in the ravine, slowly trying to make her way back to her car in hopes that by honking the horn she can attract attention. Gradually becoming weaker and more dehydrated, Georgie falls in and out of sleep and her mind flows back and forth between present and past. Through her recollections, we learn the story of her life, from childhood through motherhood through widowhood. We learn of those she has loved and those she has lost and gained, of sorrow and joy, of regrets and uncertainties. This book is beautifully written and poignant, populated by characters who are interesting and endearing. I absolutely loved it.
