The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett (by Annie Lyons)

I loved this book. Between Eudora and Rose, I was thoroughly entertained. Eudora is a little crotchety and, at 85 years old, she feels she has the right to choose how to live … or die. As you get to know her, you will learn about her life from childhood. Your heart will ache at the many ways life has been unkind to Eudora. I kept wondering when something positive would happen … and why isn’t she even more crotchety!

Then Rose appears in her life and you will laugh at her bubbly personality, her delightful sense of fashion, and the sheer honesty that flows from her mouth. It was precious to see 10-year-old Rose tell everyone that Eudora and Stanley, another senior adult, are her best friends.

This book will have you laughing, crying, rolling your eyes, and asking yourself if you are living life to the fullest. What an emotional gem that will have you flipping the pages as fast you can. But you will not want the story to end because you’re not ready to say goodbye.
