Inhaltsangabe

The story of a man who had given up hope....and the village that gave it back to him.

When a young City trader, Joe, washes up on the sands of St Piran in Cornwall, warning of a deadly pandemic virus and a financial apocalypse, he is rescued by the villagers and given a home.

From the retired village doctor and the beachcomber, to the priest's wife and the flamboyant romantic novelist, they take this lost soul into their midst. The village, Joe tells them, must store up food, and isolate themselves to stay safe.

But are Joe's fears unfounded? Why has Joe fled the city for St Piran? And what of the whale that lurks in the bay?

Intimate, funny and heart-warming, Not Forgetting the Whale is a story about a community reacting to a deadly threat, about the best and worst in our nature - and the search for a place to call home.
