About the book: 
Durban lawyer Teddy Dickerson has run out of ideas. Cynical, single and middle-aged, he’s the very last of his family to still call South Africa home.
 
When his formidable Aunt Val dies, she leaves him an unusual bequest: her task for Teddy is to post letters to eight of her friends around the world, a job that will take him on a journey into new and unexpected territory.
 
When the replies start flowing in – quirky, unexpected and often hilarious missives from India, Egypt, England, Canada and beyond – Teddy realises there was more to his tough aunt than he’d thought.
 
Will he take on Aunt Val’s role as confidant and comforter of the lost? Confidant and comforter? Teddy?!
 
One thing’s for certain: Aunt Val is laughing in her grave.
