Oliver Gurth Perkins is 75, and the darkest cloud on his horizon is that the local bookshop no longer stocks collected volumes of the Times cryptic crosswords. He has an easy companionship with his wife; his dental practice is undemanding; his son is a decent enough sort; and his granddaughter who comes for the school holidays is a delight. But when a minor heart episode convinces Oliver that it's time to put a little more time into the lives of those close to him, further shocks are in store ...Change of Heart traces Olly's passage from the desolation of his first realisation that Hester is quite happy with the way things are and has no desire for more intimate communication with him, to his happy embrace of an extended family life. Change of Heart is a glittering jewel of a book, an audacious mixture of comic invention and sensitive human insight that is Barbara Anderson at her very best.

The Bookworms Mission:

We strive to reduce unnecessary landfill by taking used books, second-hand books, paperback books, hardback books, pre-loved books, great reads and recycled books and then redistributing them throughout New Zealand, Australia and the rest of the world. Readers can connect online with book titles, helping them find new homes, and support reusing and re-loving books that are affordable. At Bookworms you’ll find cheap books, hidden gems and even some lost treasures. We have a passion for sustainability, being eco-friendly, eco-conscious and we aim to incorporate that into all that we do.
