Synopsis

Part of The Year of Short Stories, Charity Begins at Home is one of a limited number of digital shorts released to celebrate the publication of Jeffrey Archer’s magnificent seventh short-story collection, Tell Tale.

Taken from Cat O’ Nine Tales Jeffrey Archer's fifth collection of short stories, Charity Begins at Home is a captivating short read featuring Archer’s trademark humour and unforgettable characters.

By all estimates Henry Preston lives an uneventful existence – an accountant with no prospect of making partner and single with a sedate home life. That is until he meets Angela Forster, a fundraiser who specializes in charity events. As he begins overseeing Angela’s accounts, Henry spots an opportunity to live a life he previously thought impossible. With everything at stake, does Henry have the nerve to gamble with their futures for the chance of a better life . . .
