    Description

    Meet Tom. Or Dr O’Grady, as he used to be called. When you pass him on the street, most people don’t even give him a second glance. You see, Tom isn’t living his best life. Burdened by grief, he’s only got his loyal dog, Bette Davis, for company and a rucksack containing his whole world.

    Then there’s Ruth and her son, DJ, who no longer have a place to call home. But Ruth believes that you can change the world by helping one person at a time - and Tom needs her help.

    There are a thousand ways to find your home - you just need to be brave enough to look for them.

    Couldn't put it down

    Beautifully written. Ms Harrington takes you on a delightful rollercoaster ride. I laughed a lot listening to this book, but I think I cried more. The narrators voices suited the characters perfectly.

    I went into this book with very high expectations...

    And I wasn’t disappointed.
    As with the other two books I’ve listened to by this author, this book had great, but flawed characters, that remind us, there is still some good in humanity.
    The two narrators were also perfectly chosen.

    good soul food

    Am so pleased to have found this. Picking a book is often like the lottery. Will it be a winner? This was a fine story, well read, a winner!! thus I urge you to try it.

    I Loved it!

    I really enjoyed this book. The story of folks who have become homeless for different reasons teaches us alot about our judgements. But for me it was more about how to forge forth to make something better. Each character was richly drawn out and I was pulled immediately into the story. My only criticism is the male narrator. His reading was too stilted for a novel. It brought me out of the story many times.

    Terrific story

    I really enjoyed it and thought both narrators were excellent. The characters were interesting, and Ruth who is autistic was particularly well drawn.

    Wonderful story..

    Great insight into thoes we think we see and don’t see at all… the great strength of family created by kindness, love understanding and not at all by blood…Quite beautiful actually…

    Nice feel-good story.

    Truly enjoyed the story. Characters were great! Narration was good for most of the story. Only thing that kept irking me was the narrator getting stuck on Ruth’s halting speech pattern(which suited her character perfectly), when switching to Tom. If not for that; would’ve been a 5 star!
