When Maureen McGirr finally takes the big trip she had planned for her honeymoon, she still has the cosmetic case she was given for her wedding almost forty years before. She also has another lifetime's experience and a thirty-something son, a Jesuit priest, to take with her. The pair make unlikely companions as they travel the cliches of Europe, but not as unlikely as the tourists they encounter.
Part Bill Bryson, part Joseph O'Connor, even part 'Mother And Son', this book is warm, funny and insightful. It's about leaving home and finding home. It's about different ways of seeing the world and different ways of believing. It's about the perfect shopping trip.
