Born on April 21, 1926, the exact same day as Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Georgie is one of 99 privileged Commonwealth subjects invited to an 80th birthday lunch at Buckingham Palace. All she has to do is drive two hours to the airport and board the plane for London. Except that she drives off the edge of the road, her car plunging into a thickly wooded ravine. Thrown from the car, injured and unable to move, Georgie must rely on her strength, her full store of family memories, her no-nonsense wit and a reciting of the names of the bones in her body - a long-forgotten childhood exercise that reminds her she is still very much alive. Charming, witty and profound, Remember the Bones offers a remarkable insight into the life of one ordinary woman, who, while drawing on her instincts to survive, must ask herself the ultimate question: What is a life worth?
