The Helpline EPUB
';Nicely observed, with deft writing that makes it look easy. I think we all know someone like Germaine'GRAEME SIMSION, bestselling author of The Rosie Project
Office life can be a minefield . . .
Germaine Johnson likes Sudoku, biscuits and maths. She is great with numbers and not so great with people. But after an incident at work leaves her jobless, shes forced to accept a position shes entirely wrong for: answering the phones of the Senior Citizens Helpline.
However, it turns out that the role involves a more interesting secret project: to shut down the local community centre and stop the elderly troublemakers in their tracks. Germaine initially believes she is the no-nonsense woman for the job - until she gets to know the very people shes trying to evict.
As the rebelling senior citiziens begin to open Germaines eyes to a life outside boxes and numbers, she realises that she may be the only one capable of pulling their feuding community together . . .
Witty, big-hearted and hugely enjoyable,The Helplineis what you might get if you crossedThe Rosie ProjectwithEleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
