Some people just look destined for great things. And sometimes, life has other ideas. Ever since The Incident, James DeWitt has stayed on the safe side. He likes to know what happens next. Danny Allen is not on the safe side. He is more past the point of no return. But it's funny the way life is sometimes. Just when you think you know how everything is, it surprises you. And redemption can come in the most unlikely forms.... Warm, witty and wise, Mike Gayle's new novel is a powerful story of male friendship.

One of the best books I've read on audible. It really makes you think. So glad I listened to advise from Zoe Balls book club.

A romantic comedy from Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project, and his wife, Anne Buist. Two misfits walk 2000 km along the pilgrims' way in Spain to find themselves and, perhaps, each other. Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past - for Zoe, the death of her husband; for Martin, a messy divorce.
