The Kindness Project

The Kindness Project

When Bea Adlington unexpectedly dies, it falls to her daughter Alice to sort out her affairs.

Unlike Alice, who has always preferred books to people, Bea was the village’s unofficial agony aunt – she knew everyone, and helped everyone – and she has left Alice a series of letters she calls ‘The Kindness Project’, each one an unfinished task to complete around the village on her behalf.

Though it goes against her nature, Alice sees it as her duty to complete the project and so she tackles these tasks, one by one: a widow who has shut herself off from the world, a feud between lifelong friends, a frustrated young mum, it falls to Alice to help them out. It’s a bumpy ride, but Alice finds herself drawn ever closer into village life, and it might just be what she needs to face up to the loss of her mother and maybe even open her own clamped-shut heart…
