Description: Missy Carmichael needs saving from herself. Prickly and stubborn, she has long since pushed away friends and family and now at 79, she has resigned herself to her lonely existence. An unexpected meeting on a walk in the park offers her the chance to change all of that - but only if she is prepared to embrace the challenge of engaging with life again.

Set in London and with a rich and diverse range of characters, this is a poignant story with surprising depth that reminds us of the joy of friendship and the importance of connection.
