Train Man, Hardback Book

Train Man Hardback

Hardback

Description

'Brilliant... profoundly affecting. A beautiful story.' Ruth Jones, author of Never GreenerMichael is a broken man.

He's waiting for the 09.46 to Gloucester, so as to reach Crewe for 11.22: the platforms are long at Crewe, and he can walk easily into the path of a high-speed train to London.

He's planned it all: a net of tangerines (for when the refreshments trolley is cancelled), and a juice carton, full of neat whisky.

To make identification swift, he has taped his last credit card to the inside of his shoe. What Michael hasn't factored in is a twelve-minute delay, which risks him missing his connection, and making new ones.

He longs to silence the voices in his own head: ex-girlfriends, colleagues, and the memories from his schooldays, decades old.

They all torment him. What Michael needs is somebody to listen. A last, lonely journey becomes a lesson in the power of human connection, proving that no matter how bad things seem, it's never too late to get back on track.

Journeys intersect. People find hope when and where they least expect it.

A missed connection needn't be a disaster: it could just save your life.
