The Cruise: Unabridged edition

By Caroline James, Read by Linda Hargreaves

Girl power for the over sixties!’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Three women.

One widowed.

One unmarried.

One almost divorced.

All aged 63, but not ready to give up on life!

Leaving behind the heartache, guilt and disappointment of their real lives, three friends decide that now they’re in their sixties, it’s time they finally did something for themselves!

Swapping Christmas turkeys and BBC reruns for crystal waters, white sandy beaches and smooth golden rum, Anne, Jane and Kath throw caution (and tradition) to the wind as they set sail on a luxury two-week Christmas cruise around the Caribbean.

Will the three friends find the comfort and joy they seek aboard the Diamond Star?
