The Last Hurrah

By Carmel McMurdo Audsley

General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Bob and Anna McAllister are a retired couple living a comfortable lifestyle in Australia. When Anna's breast cancer returns and Bob's heart condition deteriorates, they are worried about dealing with the end stage of life. Their adult children all have busy lives and they don't want to be a burden to them. They have enjoyed many cruises to the South Pacific and, after much discussion, they decide to take one last cruise - have one last hurrah - and not return. Their decision not only affects them but also has a great impact on their family. It is a love story about two people who cannot bear to be without each other and a family who are so busy rushing through life that they miss the signs that they are needed.



Carmel McMurdo Audsley is an Australian Author, Journalist and Editor who lives in Brisbane with her husband Iain. She has written four historical fiction novels set in Scotland from the seventeenth century through to the twentieth century. Her trilogy of novels about her ancestors who worked the land and toiled underground in the coal mines of Ayrshire, have drawn critical acclaim and emotional reactions from readers whose own families lived in similar circumstances. In 2015 she published The Undertaker set in 1858 in Edinburgh Scotland, about a young woman who inherits her father’s undertaking business. Her fifth historical novel set in Scotland and Australia, Conviction, will be published later in 2016. In a departure from her usual genre, the author was moved to write The Last Hurrah after a holiday on a cruise ship. Although the subject matter is sensitive, the author sees this novella as essentially a love story.
