Publisher's Summary

It only takes a moment, to change a life for ever....

Fern is too busy making sure other people feel good about themselves to give much thought to her own happiness. But somehow, without her noticing, life has run away from her.

Suddenly, Fern realises her vintage clothes business is struggling, and the casual relationship she’d always thought she was happy in doesn’t look so appealing.

But sometimes, karma really does come through. And when Fern goes out of her way to help 85-year-old Dinah, little does she realise their new friendship will change her life.

Dinah may have troubles in her past, but she’s lived and loved to the full. Can Dinah show Fern that even the smallest acts of kindness can make the world a better place?

If you liked Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine or How to Be Happy, you'll love A Random Act of Kindness.

I absolutely LOVED this book!

Wow, was this a great "listen"! Even tho I could only listen a half hour at a time most days, I was SO interested in all of the characters. I loved how interesting their reactions to life and interactions were, that everyone had strengths and flaws like we all do, and that together they were better. The narrator was wonderful and made the story all that much better for listening to it instead of just reading it, and I loved that Kim was his own voice, voiced by a male narrator and nobody else was voiced by that narrator...it really made Kim, a small but important character, stand out and seem important. I came away from listening to this so into it that I am listening a second time to make sure I caught all of the nuances, I loved it that much! I love a book that makes me feel better for reading it.

Easy going and feel good

If your looking for something that's light (on the surface) but holds a deeper meaning this is it. The variety of narrators adds to the believability and love for the characters especially 'the mature ladies'. I totally loved its quiet strength, humanity and humility. Bravo

Well written, well read, enjoyed very much

I fell in love with the characters brought to life by Josie Dunn and Mike Grady. A delightfully different style and well worth a listen.
