There are three things you should know about Elsie. The first is that she's my best friend. The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better. And the third...might take a little bit more explaining. Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died 60 years ago?

I loved this book so much I immediately started listening again - and I’ve never listened to a book twice.
The writing is delightful, and it’s such a gorgeous handling of the characters and their concerns.
The story is engaging - almost too much so, as I often struggled to stop listening when I needed to do something else.
The narration is so well done that you don’t stop to think about it, which is exactly what I want in an audio book.
Highly recommended
