For every woman who's ever felt overwhelmed and under-appreciated at Christmas comes the story of a decent woman, a widowed grandmother, respected matriarch of a big, noisy family who snaps one holiday season and decides to run away for the holidays. Little does she realize what adventures are in store.

Long time widow Sandy Forbes is breaking out this Christmas. In her 71 years on earth she has stuffed and cooked 55 Christmas turkeys, baked hundreds of pies, turned out thousands of shortbread cookies and hoisted enough pine trees in her living room to reforest the Amazon.
Her family love her. They come to her for every occasion, eating, drinking, squabbling and then leaving her with a mass of dishes and a mountain of crumpled holiday wrap. But this is the year everything changes. When she wants someone else to take over Christmas dinner, the family lays a big guilt trip on her and Grandma rebels. Sandy’s giving herself a gift this Christmas. She’s running away from home for the holidays.

Grandma runs away for Christmas.

 on 4 January 2017
By Poppy
A lovely little Christmas story which should be read by single Grandparents everywhere… especially those whose lives follow a humdrum pattern and they feel a little wicked when they change it and have an adventure…

Run turkey run

This was a nice short story about how over the years the pressures of family christmas has taking its toll on an old lady. It made you think about your own christmas’s and how things have evolved. The family are a pretty selfish lot who seem more concerned about being served hand and foot than to consider the main characters age, feelings or own wishes. I was glad she made her escape and that she had a lovely time with the possibility of a follow up book. It is a nice feel good book at the end and a book to make people realise that we are maybe getting selfish in our modern world and not think of how others are feeling. I loved this book.

more like a serial

This was a very endearing little tale which we can all identify with ,,when we too are always put upon! It was a very short story,more like a serial .When I turned a page and found it had abruptly finished ,I then had to but the next episode.Quick and amusing.

A nice story and I know exactly how she felt

A nice story and I know exactly how she felt. I had a similar type of thing..all the family think you are the one that should”do Christmas” no one’s else offers, so you have to rebel to shock them into realising that you do have a life apart from pandering to them. A good read I enjoyed it.

read it through but was a bit disappointed in the general theme of the story – wasn’t as gripping and exciting as it was purported to be believe
