Publisher's Summary

There are three things you should know about Elsie.
The first thing is that she's my best friend.
The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better.
And the third thing...might take a little bit more explaining.

Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died 60 years ago?

From the author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, this audiobook will teach you many things, but here are three of them:

  • The fine threads of humanity will connect us all forever.
  • There is so very much more to anyone than the worst thing they have ever done.
  • Even the smallest life can leave the loudest echo.

What the Critics Say

"Charming, wise and profoundly human. I lived every page of this book." (Erin Kelly)

"A warm, wise novel - brilliantly entertaining - that also manages to be a timely and profound take on ageing. I loved it." (Kate Hamer)

"A real treasure from Joanna Cannon's wry and amusing world, where the long view from the day-room is at once poignant and perceptive." (James Hannah)

    "My long second "

    I truly love this book, it is written with such sensitivity and insight. The characters are treated with care and respect.
    I spent many years nursing older people with acute mental health illness, and this reminds me so much of those times when I've tried to unpick the seeds of reality from distressing delusional ideas.
