How can you pack for the journey of a lifetime?
George Baxter has settled for a comfortable life, content as the years unfold predictably – until Win, his wife of twenty-six years, dies.
With his loyal dog Monty by his side, George throws himself into his work as an antiques dealer. His business is at the heart of the village and all sorts pass through the doors, each person in search of their own little piece of history.
When George meets local widow Sylvia Newsome, he imagines a different kind of future. But life has more revelations to offer him. Over the course of an English summer George uncovers some unexpected mysteries from his past, which could shape his tomorrows . . .
I liked the sound of this book from the blurb so was looking forward to reading it. Not a great deal really happens in the story, George is the main character and after recently been widowed he finds unexpected time on his hands, along with his dog Monty they try and carry on no matter what. Then he meets Sylvia and he sees what his life could be like. It was an ok read, thought provoking and I felt calm reading it. I just felt as though a lot more could of been added to make it more interesting.
