Audible Editor Reviews

Best-selling author of A Hundred Pieces of Me, Lucy Dillon, brings a heartwarming and meaningful tale in her latest release audiobook One Small Act of Kindness, beautifully narrated by Lucy Price-Lewis. It tells the story of a couple who pack up their life and leave their troubles behind in London for a new beginning in the countryside. They find a mysterious woman on their way and so begins the cycle of kindness that ultimately touches the lives of all who they know. Available now from Audible.

Publisher's Summary

What can you do to make the world a better place? Libby helps a stranger and transforms her life in the process.

Libby and her husband, Jason, have moved back to his hometown to turn the family B&B into a boutique hotel. They have left London behind and all the memories - good and bad - that went with it. The injured woman Libby finds lying in the remote country road has lost her memory. She doesn't know why she came to be there, and no one seems to be looking for her.

When Libby offers to take her in, this one small act of kindness sets in motion a chain of events that will change many people's lives....

    I was a skeptic of audible books, but I've been won over! I listen to my books everywhere, even while cooking. Audible is a perfect escape!

    Story
    "Very touching and Suspenseful"

    Ooh what a great read!! Full of suspense and character; compassion and treachery; love and contempt and rewarding kindness.
    This book speaks to the realities of the difficulties in marriage, the grieving process, the effects of past trauma on our characters, the influences of society and friends; the traps and temptations of keeping up appearances; and, abusive or toxic relationships. It's a book that reminds us of the importance of kindness and its rewards can be both direct and indirect, immediate or long term. It's a really good book and I can understand why it's a bestseller!

    "Twee and irritating from the get go"

    The woman is introduced as a nervous, tweely plucky, incompetent fool. I prefer stories where the main protagonists are savvy and confident.

    "Average light reading"

    I liked the book overall but found the performance a bit difficult as Libby sounded so whiny. Perhaps that was the intention but I found it a shame.

    I can never stop a book without knowing the ending but wish I had been able to do this with this one as I found it average and the simple plot a bit too drawn out.

    "Loved it"

    Loved the story, didn't like the abrupt ending.
    I would have liked it to continue with all the happy ever afters, even though I knew the outcome.
