Summary

Summary

It's never too late to start living.

Infused with the emotional power of Me Before You and the irresistible charm of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and Be Frank with Me, a moving and joyous novel about an elderly woman ready to embrace death and the little girl who reminds her what it means to live.

Eudora Honeysett is done with this noisy, moronic world—all of it. She has witnessed the indignities and suffering of old age and has lived a full life. At eighty-five, she isn’t going to leave things to chance. Her end will be on her terms. With one call to a clinic in Switzerland, a plan is set in motion. 

Then she meets ten-year-old Rose Trewidney, a whirling, pint-sized rainbow of color and sparkling cheer. All Eudora wants is to be left alone to set her affairs in order. Instead, she finds herself embarking on a series of adventures with the irrepressible Rose and their affable neighbor, the recently widowed Stanley—afternoon tea, shopping sprees, trips to the beach, birthday celebrations, pizza parties. 

While the trio of unlikely BFFs grow closer and anxiously await the arrival of Rose’s new baby sister, Eudora is reminded of her own childhood—of losing her father during World War II and the devastating impact it had on her entire family. In reflecting on her past, Eudora realizes she must come to terms with what lies ahead. 

But now that her joy for life has been rekindled, how can she possibly say goodbye? 

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett is an exquisitely poignant tale of life, friendship, and facing death. In the latter, the author dares to explore a subject that many shy away from, but she does so with touching sensitivity, gentle humor, and absolute honesty. Eudora’s courage, dignity, and wry sense of fun are beautifully drawn as she takes the reader on the heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting journey of her life and death. Everyone should read this book.” Ruth Hogan, author of Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel
