Hanson Drake has five hundred million in the bank and a house on the beach overlooking the ocean. As the writer of the world's favourite song, he hasn't had to do a day's work in his life.
Stung into action by a derisive article in a national newspaper, Hanson Drake decides to change his life by becoming a volunteer at a country house.
He vows to do at least one good deed every day in the twenty-four days leading up to Christmas in the hope of securing salvation and redemption for his wasteful life.
In helping others, he finally understands his place in the universe as he learns to celebrate the ordinariness and eccentricities of the people he meets.
But what does fate have planned for Hanson Drake?
The Twenty-Five Deeds of Hanson Drake is Christmas story set during Advent. The novel can be enjoyed at anytime of the year, but it makes a perfect Christmas read between 30 November and 25 December.
