Summary

The smallest things can make the biggest difference....

Veronica Beecham's cottage is the neatest house on Mapleberry Lane. A place for everything, and everything in its place—that's her motto. But within her wisteria-covered walls, Veronica has a secret: she's hardly left her perfect home in years.

Then her teenage granddaughter, Audrey, arrives on the doorstep, and Veronica's orderly life is turned upside down. Shy and lonely, Audrey is struggling to find her place in the world. As a bond begins to form between the two women, Audrey develops a plan to give her gran the courage to reconnect with the community—they'll form a kindness club, with one generous action a day to help someone in the village, and perhaps help each other at the same time. 

As their small acts of kindness begins to ripple outwards, both Veronica and Audrey find that with each passing day, they feel a little braver. There's just one task left before the end of the year: to make Veronica's own secret wish come true.... 

A heartwarming story community at its heart, about the little kindnesses that make the world a better place. Perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley and Holly Hepburn!

The Kindness Club on Mapleberry Lane contains all 4 parts from The Kindness Club on Mapleberry Lane series

Lovely

A delightful story which I thoroughly enjoyed and indulged in a few tears. One of those books where you’re not ready to leave just yet so need a break before starting another.

A lovely read

Such a heartwarming story, colourfully comforting read full of twist and turns. I wasn't far into the story before I wanted to read it from cover to cover, not possible so had to wait for me time!! I hope you love this read as much as I did.

Easy listening, great story!

This is a light story that was easy to listen to with a great message. Loved the transformation of all the characters throughout the story. I will be listening to more from this author and the narrator has become one of my favorites.

Perfect story for 2021

A much-needed break from all the nonsense going on in the world. Much more satisfying than TV.
