Publisher's Synopsis

'An enchanting debut' USA Today bestseller Mandy Robotham

'A beautiful, uplifting story of love and kindness … A brilliant debut novel' Malcolm Brabant, co-author, The Daughter of Auschwitz

I am the oldest person ever to have lived in this world. I am the one who lived through their monster camps and brought the ones left of my family to London to make more family. I am the one to laugh at those angry, evil people and tell them, you see, I made it through. We made it through. This is enough. It is my world's record.

Family matriarch and Holocaust survivor Nora Wojnaswki is about to become the oldest person in the world, ever, and her family are determined to celebrate in style.

But Nora isn't your average centenarian and she has other ideas. When she disappears with her carer Arifa on a trip down memory lane in the East End of London, a wartime secret, buried deep for over 70 years, will finally be revealed.

'A touching, funny and beguiling story about the ties of family and friendship, and what we owe to those we love' Caroline Wyatt

'A moving, poignant and laugh out loud story about surviving and thriving. It makes you want to count your blessings and polish them while you are at it…' Lizzie Enfield
