Can you learn to live again at fifty-five?
Stuart Borefield has spent his life putting others before himself. In particular, his elderly father.
But when his father dies and Stuart discovers he forgot to put him in his will, he’s shattered.
His older brothers allow Stuart to remain in the family home for just one year. So Stuart advertises for a lodger and gets his first job as a paid carer, looking after kind-hearted, elderly William.
Stuart’s new lodger is the lively and colourful Florence, an ageing tribute band singer who is full of life. And also the complete opposite of staid Stuart.
He’s not used to the dancing and singing that fills the house with joy. Not to mention her knickers left to dry on every spare surface in the bathroom.
She’s everything Stuart never got the chance to be. And for that, he can’t help but push her away. No matter how alive she makes him feel.
But Stuart has already changed. He’s no longer the timid man he was when he met Florence. And the future is looking bright, if he only has enough courage enough to grasp it . . .
