              The heartwarming story of curmudgeonly pensioner George, who, since his wife's death three years ago, is living a life that is no more than the sum of his 'worn-out, washed out days'. While his marriage to Pen was a happy one, they never had children, so his life has narrowed to ...trips to the shop, occasional visits from his bossy sister Shirl and afternoons in the pub with his old mate Redgum. But one day, everything changes when Angie, a 19-year-old single mother, unexpectedly saves his life. George grudgingly acknowledges his debt to her, and later, when Angie asks for a favour, he has no choice but to agree. Gradually George's life begins to blossom, until Angie's fecklessness unexpectedly sets him on the wrong side of the law. It takes all of his love and courage, and friends both old and new, for George to deal with a very unexpected turn of events. A novel about mistakes, accidental families, and the transformative power of love, from the bestselling author of BOOK OF LOST THREADS, Tess Evans.

Mercy Street tells the heartwarming story of curmudgeonly old widowed pensioner, George - who for the most part lives in a world of memories of his dead wife, Pen, and dreams of the family they could have had -... and Rory, the very real 'grubby little brat' who is dumped on him, much to his displeasure, by her unreliable mother, Angie. In his own inept way, George valiantly tries to rise to the challenge of caring for the tear-sodden, sullen little girl, but it's only when his bossy sister Shirl, his old mate Redgum, and his neighbors, the Nguyens, get involved, that gradually, little by little, an accidental family of sorts takes shape. But then, years later, Angie reappears, and wants her daughter back. George, determined not to lose Rory, hatches an audacious plan and they take to the road ...But is it too late? Does anything trump a mother's need? And is love enough to make a family? A novel about mistakes, accidental families, and the transformative power of love, from the bestselling author of BOOK OF LOST THREADS, Tess Evans.
