Product Description

‘What can I tell you about Albert? He was very tall and thin and as bald as an egg. From a distance he wasn’t promising, but then he turned and looked at me. They could have heard my knees knocking in Ballymena.’

A chance encounter leads to unexpected romance for Johanna and Albert. Together, the couple criss-cross County Down, visiting ancient monuments and talking about the future they plan to spend together.

Then real life intrudes, in the shape of possessive exes, demanding grown-up children and Johanna’s friend Rita, who is far from convinced that Albert is as reliable as he seems.

Can our seasoned travellers make their relationship go the distance?

A warm, funny and uplifting story about second chances – perfect for fans of Thursdays in the Park.
