The Perfect Read for a Chilly Lockdown

Veronica McCreedy is about to have the journey of a lifetime
. . .

Veronica McCreedy lives in a mansion by the sea.  She loves a nice cup of Darjeeling tea whilst
watching a good wildlife documentary and she’s never seen without her ruby-red
lipstick.

Although these days Veronica is rarely seen by anyone
because, at 85, her days are spent mostly at home, alone. She can be found
either collecting litter from the beach (‘people who litter the countryside
should be shot’), trying to locate her glasses (‘someone must have moved them’)
or shouting instructions to her assistant, Eileen (‘Eileen, door!’).

Veronica doesn’t have family or friends
nearby.  Not that she knows about,
anyway, and she has no idea where she’s going to leave her considerable wealth
when she dies.

But today . . . today Veronica is going to make a decision
that will change all of this.

‘This year’s
Eleanor Oliphant . . . Funny, bittersweet and wholly original.’ Daily
Express
