Danny is the definition of a man who ‘could do better’. He drinks more than he should, currently lives in his best friend’s garden shed – and he hasn’t spoken to his sister in 16 years.
But when Danny is the subject of a misleading newspaper article, claiming his lifestyle is actually quite enlightened, he suddenly finds himself in the limelight. Letters begin to flood in from strangers seeking his guidance.
Wolfie is the daughter of Danny’s estranged sister, Lou. She’s never met her uncle, but her mother is struggling. So when Wolfie sees Danny’s picture in the paper, she sets out to find him.
Within a week, Danny goes from being responsibility-free to a big brother, an uncle and an unwitting existential ‘guru’ to some very lost souls.
Can he become the man they all need him to be?
I am a big fan of this book, how does the author write such a moving story but with added humour. It is a gentle and heartfelt story that will bring tears to your eyes but also will lift your spirit. Danny is a man who has given up on life, he drinks too much, doesn’t speak to his family and lives in his best friend’s shed. After the newspaper gets a whiff of his current situation they decide to publish an article about him. Then comes Wolfie who is Danny’s sister’s daughter, she sees the uncle that she has never met and sets out to find him. Can Danny cope with being an uncle and can he finally get his life back on track. This was such a lovely read and I am glad I have read it.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
