Twenty-year-old Jenny is struggling to make friends at university, and moves in to Sunset Promenade to escape her problems. Her roommates are a little older than she was expecting - Sunset Promenade is a private nursing home, taking in students to save money. At first the new residents clash, but when Jenny introduces a movie night the group realise they have more in common than they think. In the spirit of his ebook bestseller Calling Major Tom, David M Barnett's second novel introduces a cast of quirky yet loveable characters, who explore the aches of being young and the pains of being old. The Lonely Hearts Cinema Club is an uplifting story about community and belonging that will leave you with a spring in your step no matter how old you are.
