The Secret Life of Shirley Sullivan is a charming, nostalgic and heart-warming story for women of any age - and it all begins when 79-year-old Shirley kidnaps husband from his nursing home for one final adventure . . .
'An endearing novel about one gutsy, smart and inspirational woman. I want to be Shirley when I grow up.' Rachael Johns
'Elderly. Is that how the world sees me? A helpless little old lady? If only they knew. I allow myself a small smirk.'
When Shirley Sullivan signs her 83-year-old husband, Frank, out of the Sunset Lodge Nursing Home, she has no intention of bringing him back.
For fifty-seven years the couple has shared love, happiness and heartbreak. And while Frank may not know who his wife is these days, he knows he wants to go home. Back to the beach where they met in the early 1960s . . .
So Shirley enacts an elaborate plan to evade the authorities – and their furious daughter, Fiona – to give Frank the holiday he’d always dreamed of.
And, in doing so, perhaps Shirley can make amends for a lifelong guilty secret . . .
