In weekly phone calls to his daughter in Australia, widower Hubert Bird paints a picture of the perfect retirement, packed with fun, friendship and fulfilment. But Hubert Bird is lying. The truth is day after day drags by without him seeing a single soul. Until, that is, he receives some good news - good news that in one way turns out to be the worst news ever, news that will force him out again, into a world he has long since turned his back on. Now Hubert faces a seemingly impossible task: to make his real life resemble his fake life before the truth comes out.

This book takes you through every emotion lows and highs. I loved this story of Hubert Bird which is essentially a tale of his life which is heart warming and heart breaking in equal quantities but so relevant in the world we live in today. I think everyone could take something from this book and I cannot wait to read another of Mike Gayle's books.
