4 Mins Lonely strapline

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 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 Street residents and he sets about trying to draw them out of their shells and back into the world. But will his helping hand make everything worse?

4 Mins Asset Reader


  • OMG! What a stunning read. If you read just one book to restore your faith in human nature then this would be the one for me.
  • I award 5* to books that have gone that extra mile. Around 10% of the 240 books I read a year make the grade. This one deserves 10*.
  • Absolutely addictive. I got so lost in this book. I flew through it and didn't want to put it down. A real emotional roller coaster.
  • A great warm hug of a book.
  • I could not love this book anymore if I tried. I laughed, giggled, sobbed and literally could not put it down. There is no better book to lose yourself in. Addictive.
