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.

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…

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

I love that the leading character in this book is over 70 and a “Grandma”, and what with the added flavour of Christmas, it’s what drew me in to read the free chapter and I’m glad I did. It’s a sweet read, with a character I can sympathize with. I agree with one of the US reviewers that more stories should be written around older people, as romance and adventure still exists as we get older – and we still enjoy reading as we age! There aren’t too many newly released Christmas books around for the over 50’s club, but I found another in 

A sweet seasonal tale

When I read reviews by reviewers who say they `identified with the heroine’, I’m sometimes a bit bemused: I’m never quite sure how one can identify with a witch, or pointy-eared princess, or red-eyed demoness. I probably lead a very dull life.
