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…

Could not put down!!
I have been a massive Carmel Harrington fan for a while now and I love all of her books. Her latest book is a beautiful tale of two people and has you hooked from the first chapter. You fall in love with the characters as the story develops and I love that Ruth’s Aspergers is handled so well. If you are looking for a new author which you can read and read again, look no further!
