Staff Reviews

"Read this story and fall in love with Edie – a ninety-year-old gentleman still optimistic about finding his first kiss.  Meet Bella – the twenty-four- year-old who is donating her dead boyfriend’s possessions to the charity thrift shop where Eddie volunteers.  As unlikely as it may seem their friendship is instantaneous and only grows stronger through their lunches filled with witty and insightful conversations. They help each other with their searches and their grief.  Well written, funny with engaging characters you would like as friends. A delight to read!!"

— From Susan's Staff Picks


The author of the beloved international hit The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot returns with a funny, uplifting story about the power of friendship and finding love in unexpected places.

Eddie Winston is 90 years old. He has lived and he has loved, but he has never been kissed.

A true gentleman and incurable romantic, Eddie spends his days volunteering at a charity shop, where he sorts through the donations of the living and the dead, preserving letters and tokens of love along the way. And it is here that he meets Bella, a troubled young woman who, at 24 years old, has just lost the love of her life.

When Bella learns that Eddie is yet to have his first kiss, she resolves to help Eddie Winston finally find love, sparking an adventure that will take them to unexpected places and, they hope, bring Eddie Winston to the moment he has waited for all his life.

A tale of friendship and kindness that reminds us that those we love are never forgotten and it is never too late to try again.
