One Good Thing by Alexandra Potter is the new heart-wrenching, but often hilarious, love story, from
the author of Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up.
Liv Brooks, newly divorced and unsure of the future, decides, on a whim, to leave her busy life in London
for the remote, windswept countryside of the Dales. She needs to make a new start and leave the past
However, Liv realises that this is going to be far more difficult than it at first appeared. She is dismayed at
the amount of work that needs to be done to her dilapidated cottage. Feeling depressed and lonely she seeks out the local animal shelter. There she finds Harry, an elderly dog with issues, and takes him home.
Liv and Harry meet some of the other village residents on their daily walks and Liv soon realises that she
isn’t the only one with problems.
After meeting Valentine, an elderly man, who sits in loneliness by the window, Stanley, a small boy who
is afraid of leaving the safety of his garden, and teenager, Maya, who has issues with absolutely
everything, Liv decides that she must try to bring about a change!
This beautifully written novel takes the reader on an incredibly emotional journey through love and loss,
mental health issues, broken relationships and fears of moving on.
Heart-wrenching, but also, feelgood, comforting, and often hilarious, it ticks all the boxes for a superlative
read for the year.
Typically British with amazing scenery and a cast of quirky and diverse characters, it would also make an
exceptional TV series.
One Good Thing is available in paperback and e-book
