Publisher's Summary

Founder and sole employee of Mere Accounting, Jeffrey Mere is a solitary man. He has spent his entire life close to home, in the picturesque Scottish town of Pitlochry. After 64 years of playing it safe, with retirement looming, Jeffrey resolves to climb Ben Macdhui, Britain's second highest peak. His decision sets off a chain of events that changes his life forever. 

Challenging weather on the mountain and an encounter with a mysterious stray dog leave him exhilarated and inspired. When he gets home to share the news of his achievements with his 91-year-old mother Agnes, who lives in the old-folks home in town, Jeffrey discovers that nothing is as he left it.  

When a fire threatens the street where he lives, Jeffrey’s selfless act of bravery transforms him from a nobody to a local hero. His renewed confidence nudges him toward Mary Ferguson, Agnes’s favorite nurse at the home, a trip to the ancient streets of Rome, and a brush with the Italian underworld. 

Facing the possibility of losing the only woman he has ever loved, Jeffrey takes a leap of faith toward a future that he could never have imagined for himself.

A Wonderful Story of Hope

Listened to Tuesday’s Socks while taking my strolls or folding laundry, (found cooking or doing dishes too noisy to thoroughly encompass the story). Gordon narrated the story beautifully as I was able to picture each character emphatically. I loved the overall story line of Jeffrey overcoming his fears to embrace life, even at an older age. Bringing the “hint” of Jeffrey’s mother, Agnes, into the story was brilliant. I felt her presence and guidance along all of Jeffrey’s journeys. If you’re looking for a light hearted, yet soulful story, then Tuesday’s Socks is for you!
