Mr Doubler is an expert in many things. He can bake the fluffiest lemon drizzle cake, distil divine gin, and grow perfect potatoes. But when it comes to company, he's not so confident. Since he lost his wife, he's been living on his own on top of a hill, with just one regular visitor: his housekeeper, Mrs Millwood, who visits every day.
Until the day she doesn't.
With Mrs Millwood missing, Doubler's routine is thrown into chaos - and he begins to worry that he might have lost his way. But could the kindness of strangers bring him down from the hill?
Mr Doubler Begins Again is a nostalgic celebration of food, friendship, kindness, and second chances, perfect for fans of Rachel Joyce and Joanna Cannon.Readers love Mr Doubler Begins Again:
