We are thrilled to be doing an event with Matt Cain actually in Bolton Central Library- albeit live streamed initially, but if allowed a live in person event. He is from Bolton, he is lovely, and his Madonna of Bolton is a real treat too, I think we have 1 signed copy left too.
The idea here is to take pre-orders and give me names for dedications, we are pretty confident Matt and his publisher will be able to get him and the books in one place a week before his events and then the books come to me to distribute, we will have signed copies too.
'I loved it! Really heart-warming and joyful, but also so poignant. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It's such a beautifully authentically told story with vivid characters and you will miss them when you reach the end.' Lorraine Kelly
'Albert is such an endearing character - flawed, funny and awkward, but completely relatable.
A wonderfully warm story that completely drew me in' Ruth Hogan
'Prepare to fall in love with Albert Entwistle! Touching and tender' S. J. Watson
'Albert is delightful and charming, and the book is too' Jonathan Harvey
It's never too late to start your life's big adventure
Albert Entwistle was a postman. It was one of the few things everyone knew about him.
And it was one of the few things he was comfortable with people knowing.
64-year-old Albert Entwistle has been a postie in a quiet town in Northern England for all his life, living alone since the death of his mam 18 years ago. He keeps himself to himself. He always has.
But he's just learned he'll be forced to retire at his next birthday. With no friends and nothing to look forward to, the lonely future he faces terrifies him. He realises it's finally time to be honest about who he is.
He must learn to ask for what he wants. And he must find the courage to look for George, the man that, many years ago, he lost - but has never forgotten . .
Join Albert as he sets out to find the long-lost love of his life, and has an unforgettable and completely life-affirming adventure on the way . . .
This is a love story the like of which you have never read before!
