Eudora Honeysett is done - with all of it. Having seen first-hand what a prolonged illness can create, the eighty-five-year-old has no intention of leaving things to chance. With one call to a clinic in Switzerland she takes her life into her own hands.
But then ten-year-old Rose arrives in a riot of colour on her doorstep. Now, as precocious Rose takes Eudora on adventures she'd never imagined she reflects on the trying times of her past and soon finds herself wondering - is she ready for death when she's only just experienced what it's like to truly live?A heartfelt story of life, death, friendship and family perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and Away with the Penguins.
