Introducing Eudora Honeysett

Dearest reader friends,

it’s been a while since I’ve been in touch, for which I can only apologise. However, you have never been far from my mind as I have been spending the time writing you a new novel and this is a special one.

It tells the story of Eudora Honeysett who, at the age of eighty five, is done with life. The world is too noisy, too moronic and too selfish for her liking. She has lived Read more of this blog post »

“Life isn't filled with perfect harmony. The world is littered with bum notes, off-key moments and tuneless episodes. The trick is to find your own music, to ignore the discord and sing your own tune.”
Annie Lyons, The Choir on Hope Street

“Eudora stands back and appraises what’s left of her life. It doesn’t look like much, but then what are humans when it comes down to it? We arrive with nothing, accumulate far too much, and leave with nothing.”
Annie Lyons, The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett

“Life is precious and as long as we have a reason to continue, we should follow that path.”
Annie Lyons, The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett
