Newly single at sixty, Elin Anderson decides it's finally time for an adventure of her own. With her marriage to tedious Tom now officially over, Elin plans to visit the family she hasn't seen in years. First stop: Australia! But going home is harder than Elin thought. Everywhere she turns Elin sees brightness and colour, which only makes her own life seem even more drab and beige. How has she let herself fade away? Determined to have some fun, Elin reluctantly agrees to join The Silver Surfers - a group of seniors who travel the coast, only caring about their next big adventure. Because life's too short to watch the ocean when you could be making waves... There's only one catch - her road trip companion, Kit Pascoe. Kit is a man who doesn't know the meaning of the word fun and makes it clear to Elin that this adventure will be subject to his own strict rules. But with every new day, Elin slowly begins to rediscover who she really is. And she's certain that rules are meant to be broken... aren't they?
