A BEAUTIFUL NOVEL ABOUT LATE LOVE AND SECOND CHANCES

'A moving tribute to friendship and love, to the courage of the ordinary, and to starting again' RACHEL JOYCE
'Full of grace and humanity' Sunday Times
________________________

This story begins with a letter
From a housewife
to the gentle curator
Of an extraordinary museum
Where lies peacefully
An ancient exhibit
That holds the key
To Everything
We are.

MEET ME AT THE MUSEUM tells of a connection made across oceans and against all the odds. Through intimate stories of joy, despair, and discovery, two people are drawn inexorably towards the other, until a shattering revelation pushes their friendship to the very edge. This deeply affecting debut novel by seventy-three year-old Anne Youngson won the Paul Torday Memorial Prize and was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award.
