"Not every journey takes you far from home ... Mr Doubler lives all alone at Mirth Farm, on top of a hill. Back when she was around, Doubler's wife was always surrounded by friends, but Doubler is different. The only company he needs are his potato plants and his housekeeper, Mrs Millwood, who visits every day. So when Mrs Millwood is taken ill, it ruins everything - and Doubler begins to worry that he might have lost his way. But could the kindness of strangers be enough to bring him down from the hill?"--Publisher's description.
