Publisher's Summary

A moving story of a random act of kindness.

Old Tom Pickford, an elderly clerk at Tweedie's warehouse, is moved by the sight of a young boy on a London omnibus who is about to embark on a new life at sea. His thoughts drift back to his own boyhood in the country, which he left behind long ago.

A wonderful study in characterisation and nostalgia.
