Meet the heroine everyone's talking about . . . Fiercely resilient and impeccably dressed, Veronica McCreedy has lived an incredible 87 years. Most of them alone, in her huge house by the sea. But Veronica has recently discovered a late-life love for family and friendship, adventure and wildlife. More specifically, a love for penguins! And so when she's invited to co-present a wildlife documentary, far away in the southern hemisphere, she jumps at the chance. Even though it will put her in the spotlight, just when she thought she would soon fade into the wings. Perhaps it's never too late to shine?
"Perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. Uplifting and full of heart, and I couldn't put it down!' JO THOMAS MEET ELLIE. She?s perfectly happy living a quiet life with her husband, Clive. (Well, she does sometimes wonder about the way he talks to her, and about all the things she hasn?t achieved yet. But, she's happy enough.) MEET DAN. He?s definitely content ? content with his predictable, ordered existence, making harps in his isolated barn on Exmoor. Content being on his own, far away from other people and ? crucially ? far away from any risk of surprises. What Ellie and Dan don?t know yet, is that a chance encounter is about to change all of this . . . ?A beautiful love song of a story, wonderfully told with a warm heart and much hope? PHAEDRA PATRICK"
