Summary

There's always time to help out a stranger...isn't there?  

Supermarket delivery driver Charlie enjoys his new job, because he doesn't have to spend too long with people, who, he's found, are nothing but trouble. But when he's assigned the Hope Row street, he realises there are a lot of lonely people out there - and for some, he's their only interaction.   

The supermarket boss tells Charlie he's a driver, not a social worker - but Charlie can't abandon the Hope Row residents, and he sets about trying to draw them out of their shells and back into the world. But is four minutes enough to save a life? Or will his helping hand make everything worse?  

A heartfelt and uplifting listen, for fans of Ruth Hogan and Elly Griffiths.

Charming, empathetic and full of reality

This was a wonderful listen. The narrator is excellent at bringing the characters to life, and the author has balanced the level of discomfort needed to tell a story of people with complex pasts and feelings with uplifting humanity to tell a hopeful redemption story about the difficulty of life and the power of empathy.
