The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett

85-year-old Eudora Honeysett is done with life. She lives alone with no family or friends and is as grumpy and standoffish as her cat. When she sees a pamphlet on assisted death, she decides that it is perfect for her: death on her own terms with dignity intact. Just as she makes this decision, a new family moves in next door and 10-year-old Rose comes knocking on her door. Rose, with her bright sparkly fashion sense and outspoken, quirky personality quickly worms her way into Eudora's life, bringing unexpected joy and friendship.

Will the changes in Eudora's life bring on a change of heart or is she still determined that this is the end? Annie Lyons broaches a tricky subject with sensitivity and understanding. Her endearing characters turn this into an uplifting and feel-good read. The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett (2020) is perfect for readers who enjoyed A Man Called Ove and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
