Publisher's Summary

A delightful, sweet, and funny novel from best-selling novelist Tess Evans, Mercy Street tells 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 favor, 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 best-selling author of Book of Lost Threads, Tess Evans.

fun addition to the old curmudgeon genre

a decently written, sweet story, that is a respectable addition to the curmudgeon meets kid genre
