If you lovedA Man Called Ove,then prepare to be delighted as Jamaican immigrant Hubert rediscovers the world he''d turned his back on, in a novel that is "warm, funny, and gives you all the feels" (Good Housekeeping).

In weekly phone calls to his daughter in Australia, widower Hubert Birdpaints a picture of the perfect retirement, packed with fun, friendship, and fulfillment. But it''s a lie. In reality, Hubert''s days are all the same, dragging on without him seeing a single soul.

Until he receives some good news -- good news that in one way turns out to be the worst news ever, news that will force him out again, into a world he has long since turned his back on. The news that his daughter is coming for a visit.

Now Hubert faces a seemingly impossible task: to make his real life resemble his fake life before the truth comes out.
Along the way Hubert stumbles across a second chance at love, renews a cherished friendship, and finds himself roped into an audacious community scheme that seeks to end loneliness once and for all . . .
