Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

‘A hug in a book’ – lovely, heartwarming read – The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle by Matt Cain

My Review:

Want a hug in a book?
Then give this one a look!
Albert Entwistle is a 64 year old postie who
Keeps to himself so no one really knew
But is shocked to discover that in a year
His job will end and now he's in fear.

With no friends or family, nothing to excite,
He's unlikely to receive even one invite.
He realises at last that he needs to change
And his attitudes and choices to rearrange.
A lonely future is not what he hopes for
So decides to seek his lost love once more.

Learning to open up he starts to reveal
His traumatic past and what is now real.
Finding the courage, revisiting the past,
Making new friends, ones that will last.
What a gorgeous read with a fabulous end
I really can't more highly recommend!

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


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!
