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

    I had read so many 5 star reviews for Albert Entwhistle and was worried that it might not be able to live up to my expectations but what an absolute joy it was to read, streaming tears of joy and happiness

    We meet Albert as he’s nearing retirement and has nothing to look forward to – his world is small and he has kept himself shut away from everybody all his life; his only relationship has been a tender and loving gay relationship as a teenager but he hasn’t ever spoken about it or accepted it himself.

    A change of heart means that Albert starts opening up about his sexuality and building friendships with people around him, and he quickly finds that what he was most afraid of was all in his head.

    Beautifully told, some lovely characters and a lot of love in there
