Today I’m on the book tour for George Bunce and the Black Wave of Fear by Martin Geraghty, thank you to Zoé at Zooloos book tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.
Meet George, a resident at the Four Seasons care home in a Scottish seaside town.
Meet Carrie, an occupational therapist at the Four Seasons care home.
Join them as they form an unlikely friendship.
Immerse yourself in their story as they discover second chances in life.
Cheer for them as they find laughter in the face of adversity.
Support them as they both finally learn to bury the ghosts of their pasts and learn to live again.
Most importantly, allow George and Carrie to take you on a journey where you might just end up looking at the world differently.
George Bunce and The Black Wave of Fear is an extraordinary and poignant tale full of hope and humour.
My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧
My Thoughts: oh this book. 🥺🥺
I don’t even really know what to say, it’s like it picked me up, cuddled me all the way through and didn’t put me down until I was ready at the end.
George is now under observation in the Four Seasons care home after an accident at home where the consequences could have been a lot worse than they were.
In walks Carrie, the occupational therapist who is there to help everyone work out George’s suitability to live on his own, can he be placed in an assisted living place?
To begin with George is not happy, his routine is off and they can by even provide him with his beloved poached eggs and he refuses to communicate with anyone beyond a hello.
He soon learns though that that is not the way to be able to move on, can he change the habit of a life time and actually let someone in?
Watching George’s walls come down slowly but surely was such a beautiful thing to witness, it just shows that sometimes all you need is someone that is persistent enough to keep on at you.
There were times where I laughed out loud and times where I just wanted to grab George and shake him 😂😂
I loved this so much, but I need more, I’m still left with so many questions and would love a follow up 🤞🏼🤞🏼
