Summary

As a widow, Maureen McGirr has found excuse after excuse to put off the tour of Europe she has dreamed of for nearly forty years. When her son Michael arranges his first overseas vacation as a Jesuit, he invites her to leave Australia for the honeymoon she never got around to having. Maureen springs into action, boldly vowing to go "where millions have gone before" so she can be in Rome for the anniversary of her wedding.
Things You Get for Free is a priest's hilarious and heartwarming account of six weeks spent discovering a continent - and so much more - in the company of his mum, who is as eccentric and strong-willed as she is utterly endearing. Along the way, Michael reflects on the figures who have shaped his special brand of faith, from Saint Augustine to Hemingway to Michelangelo. At the center of it all lies his own father, who died shortly before Michael joined the Jesuit order.
