about

Eighty-six-year-old Mattie Snorgenson has had enough. She’s spent most of her life caring for family and fitting into polite society. Now she is determined to follow her dreams. Inspired by Mattie’s courage, four other senior women join with her to escape the boredom of their retirement home and travel the world together as each one seeks to fulfill the one, secret desire she has always held.

With help from a pierced, tattooed and dreadlocked granddaughter, the five friends journey from Florida to the Emerald Isle, and from Tasmania to the markets of Egypt. When their story goes viral, surfers, hitchhikers, priests and a Crocodile Dundee impersonator pitch in to help the “outrageous grannies.”  Even Doctor Phil gets into the act.

The ladies must outsmart relatives who seek to return them to senior living, and con men who see them as easy targets. Also, traveler must face her own frailties and mortality. Finally, forced to choose between the security of home and the danger of continuing their quest, ringleader Mattie is challenged with the most important decision of her life.
