Eudora Honeysett is Quite Well by Annie Lyons

Eudora Honeysett is Quite Well by Annie Lyons

Sometimes a book comes along that is just the perfect read. Like your favourite Sunday dinner, it’s delicious and it leaves you with that full belly feeling. That is what Annie Lyons has done with Eudora Honeysett.

The premise is that Eudora is in her late years and apart from Montgomery the cat she is alone in life. Eudora has all her facilities and she would like to facilitate her own ending. Not in any horrific manner but at a clinic in Switzerland that deals with such matters. It may sound a bit morbid to some but it’s just how she wants it to be. 

Now Eudora Honeysett is not your friendly happy type of lady. She is fiercely independent and private. At times cantankerous and rude to people. Keep in mind she is 83 and as we get to know her life’s story everything clicks into place about how Eudora Honeysett came to be the woman she is.

I loved seeing Eudora through the years in the flashback chapters. Annie Lyons really kept the story relatable with no fairytale-like nonsense. Along the way, we meet a whole cast of characters that come into Eudora’s life. Just when she wants to leave it, people start to really care about her well being.

In the book, we meet a character who is a death doula. As much the same as some people have when giving birth but obviously, that is a life doula.  I love the idea of a death doula, I think it’s something I would like to do if I changed careers. I am fascinated by the idea of helping people as they leave us and to make it as peaceful and serene as possible. Although I do think being as emotional as I am all that death and ending would upset me so I will keep my career change on the back burner. 

The book would make for a wonderful tv show, it would be perfect for the cold winter nights. I can see it playing out over three nights or weekly on a Sunday evening. It’s just got such an important message about life and the people we meet and the chances we have. 

Eudora Honeysett is another heart stay character for my collection. If you love stories with amazing characters and interesting plots that aren’t just feel-good fiction. But that tackle hard topics in a gentle yet honest way then please get yourself a copy of Eudora Honeysett. Make yourself a hot cuppa, slip a cosy blanket on your lap and get yourself acquainted with Miss Honeysett. But I will warn you that you won’t want the book to end and you will experience a whole range of emotions whilst reading. Do let me know how your visit with Eudora Honeysett goes. I would love to know.
