The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle By Matt Cain

The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle By Matt Cain


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 . . .

My Thoughts:

This is such a sweet and tender story about Albert who is on the hunt to find his one true love that he lost many years back. At the age of 64 years old Albert realises he is not getting younger decides to change his life for the better, he strikes up a friendship with a young mum and does a few nice things for those that he knows would appreciate it. It was heartwarming to see how people reacted to his news, and how he faced each challenge that he put himself up to. He goes on the search for his long lost love but will he find him? will he get his happily ever after? Albert is such a kind man who I was rooting for all the way through his journey. This is a love story like no other but one that will stay with me. I just loved it.
