Frank Derrick`s Holiday of A Lifetime

Производитель: "Macmillan Publishers"

Frank Derrick is eighty-two. And apparently that makes him old. But he just doesn`t feel old. Sure, his limbs ache, he can`t sleep more than a few hours a night and it takes him a while to get going in the morning. But he`s still Frank. A dad, a granddad, a friend to Bill the cat. So when he receives a phone call from Los Angeles with news that his grown-up daughter`s life is falling apart, his natural instinct is to drop everything to be with her. Unfortunately for Frank, that means using his life savings and putting himself in danger of losing his home. But then, Frank`s never been one for long-term plans. He can sort out where he and Bill the cat will live when he`s back. And so Frank gets on a plane for the first time in his life. He was never much good at helping his daughter through crises when she was growing up. He left all that to his wife Sheila, who died nearly ten years ago. Now it`s time to step up to his role of father to Beth. Joining forces with his determined granddaughter Laura, they begin The Reunion Project in an attempt to bring some happiness back into Beth`s life and to bring the family back together again for one happy family holiday. Filled with moments of great sadness, joy and humour Frank Derrick`s Holiday of A Lifetime reminds us all to make the most of every day and to appreciate those closest to us.
