    AS HEARD ON THE BBC RADIO 2 BOOK CLUB
    'This year's Eleanor Oliphant . . . Funny, bittersweet and wholly original.' Daily Express
    'I love this gorgeous book. Unflinching, stubborn, funny and moving, Veronica is an unlikely heroine who will sneak in and capture your heart.' Trisha Ashley

    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.
