Paperback / softback


'Warm, uplifting & important...a very VERY special book' Marian Keyes 'Beautifully moving and uplifting' Cecelia Ahern Meet Tom. Or Dr O'Grady, as he used to be called. When you pass him on the street, most people don't even give him a second glance.

You see, Tom isn't living his best life. Burdened by grief, he's only got his loyal dog, Bette Davis, for company and a rucksack containing his whole world. Then there's Ruth and her son, DJ, who no longer have a place to call home. But Ruth believes that you can change the world by helping one person at a time - and Tom needs her help... Why readers and authors love Carmel Harrington: 'At 72 years old I have lived a life that encompasses most of your stories and you give a lift to my soul that inspires me' Ruth, Norwich 'Convincing characters, always gripping, endearing, with a cracking pace' IRISH INDEPENDENT 'Beautifully written, emotionally intelligent & moving in the extreme' DAILY MAIL 'Brave and original' Liz Nugent 'Important, life-affirming and bursting with Carmel's trademark warmth and hope.
