An irresistible novel of unexpected friendships, second chances and long-held secrets, Nora Wojnawski is 122 years and 147 days old; if she survives the next eighteen days, she'll be the world’s oldest person ever. Her vast family is organising a ceremony to mark the occasion, but Nora isn’t interested. And to add insult to ingratitude, when her great-granddaughter Debs goes to visit her in her care home just days before the event to finalise the last few details, Nora has disappeared. What follows is an extraordinary exposé of Nora’s life.
The Unlikely Kidnapping of Nora W. will be published in spring 2023.
