Rating 4 /5
Location set in – England.
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.
Fern is our lead who takes on her personal handicaps, tries to be as brave as she can and manages to land on her feet. Well, nothing unique about it you might feel, that’s life for most.However, Fern does it all triggered by a small act of kindness from a beautiful, fashionable stranger. There’s plenty vintage fashion talk to keep the clothes lovers glued. It lightens the mood and makes you appreciate how good clothes can make you beautiful.I felt good reading the little moments filled with kindness. Friendships being formed unexpectedly, carefree warm moments filled with joy, happiness are peppered around the story. I’d pick this book on a dark, gloomy day or just when I want to enjoy a good story, which for a book nerd like me is always.
