Death of Mungo Blackwell

Publisher: Lion Hudson Release date: 2019-10-18

Description

"e;We all need to know what's missing in our lives. At a funeral people describe everything a person has accomplished in their life, but what if they missed something? What if there was one thing they never got to do? And what if they had a chance to go back and do it?"e; The Blackwells are a family with an astounding history and traditions, which include holding their funerals before they die! Their ways are questionable and their stories about deceased relatives are as bold as their red hair, but it is their eclectic wares that keep tourists coming back to their market in the town of Coraloo. Charlie Price, whose world has come crumbling down after a lapse in judgement leaves him unemployed, finds himself flung into the chaotic world of the Blackwells when he relocates to Coraoo with his socialite wife, Velveteen, and comic book-obsessed son, Gideon. Here Charlie attempts to make a living as a "e;picker"e;, reselling underpriced items he picks up at the market. Some of the Blackwells welcome him with open arms and but others resent pickers and want him thrown out of the market. Charlie soon finds this new way of life under threat and his quest for simplicity seems to be crumbling. Perhaps it's time for Charlie to have a funeral of his own... This charming story of hope will warm your heart and make your imagination soar.
