Today I am excited to be kicking off the blog tour for Four Minutes to Save a Life, I loved Bonnie and Stan and am really excited to be joining the blog tour for Anna Stuart’s new release.
Four Minutes to Save a Life is a beautiful story that pulls on your heartstrings throughout. As the story unfolds you get to know Charlie who has just started delivering groceries and what has lead him to this point in his life.
Whilst delivering groceries Charlie encounters people who as the story progresses you grow to love and whose insecurities and isolation begins to become apparent as well as what has lead them to the points they are at in their lives. This story demonstrates the impact of loneliness and how relationships grow with nurturing and time as Charlie realises four minutes will never been enough.
I loved this book it touches on depression, alcoholism and the powers of social media which are all massive influences in todays society. Anna Stuart has a wonderful way with words and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
There’s always time to help out a stranger…isn’t there?
Supermarket delivery driver Charlie enjoys his new job, because he doesn’t have to spend too long with people, who, he’s found, are nothing but trouble. But when he’s assigned the Hope Row street, he realises there are a lot of lonely people out there – and for some, he’s their only interaction.
The supermarket boss tells Charlie he’s a driver, not a social worker – but Charlie can’t abandon the Hope Row residents and he sets about trying to draw them out of their shells and back into the world. But will his helping hand make everything worse?

About the Author
Anna wanted to be an author from the moment she could pick up a pen and was writing boarding-school novels behind the sofa by the age of nine. She made the early mistake of thinking she ought to get a ‘proper job’ and went into Factory Planning – a career that gave her some wonderful experiences, amazing friends and even a fantastic husband, but did not offer much creative scope. So when she stopped to have children she took the chance to start the ‘improper job’ of writing. During the baby years she wrote in those gaps provided by sleeps, playschools and obliging grandparents, publishing short stories and serials in all the women’s magazines.
Her ultimate aim was to write longer fiction and several years ago she published a series of successful historical novels under the pseudonym Joanna Courtney. She will continue to publish under that name but is delighted, as Anna Stuart, to also be able to write Bonnie and Stan – a real-life romance set in both the present day and sixties Liverpool.
