I would like to say a huge thank you to Matson Taylor for being an absolute sweetheart and congratulations for another brilliant book that will brighten up anyone’s day. I would also like to say a huge thank you to Scribner U.K. for allowing me to read and review a physical proof copy of this fun and charming book, and lastly but by no means least, thank you to SquadPod for just being you and for being able to organise such a special blog shout out. This is the second book featuring the lovely and charming Evie Hepworth (if you haven’t read the first book…. Go out and get it The Misecucation of Evie Epworth). Intrigued? Let’s head to the blurb and find out what’s happened to Evie since last we saw her.

Ten years on from the events of The Miseducation of Evie Epworth, Evie is settled in London and working as a production assistant for the BBC. She has everything she ever dreamed of (a career, a leatherette briefcase, an Ossie Clark poncho) but, following an unfortunate incident involving a Hornsea Pottery mug and Princess Anne, she finds herself having to rethink her future. What can she do? Is she too old to do it? And will it involve cork-soled sandals?

As if this isn’t complicated enough, her disastrous love life leaves her worrying that she may be destined for eternal spinsterdom, concerned as she is, that ‘even Paul had married Linda by the time he was 26’. Through it all, Evie is left wondering whether a 60s miseducation really is the best preparation to glide into womanhood and face the new challenges (strikes, power cuts, Edward Heath’s teeth) thrown up by the growing pains of the 70s?

This is such a delightful, charming and heartwarming book. It’s about changes and working out what to do next when the road you are on doesn’t pan out the way you expect. As well as that age old question…. Will I ever find someone who gets me? But that’s misleading as it’s not really about the romance, yes of course there is some, but it focuses on how we deal with change, whether it’s getting fired from a job and then having to work out what you really want to do and how to get there.

We also meet up again with Evie and her friends and family, and it feels like taking a warm bath or being hugged by people you haven’t seen in awhile but feel that warm special glow. This book made me laugh, cry and smile with delight. I loved meeting up with Evie again and wondering what chaos she will provide us with. I wasn’t disappointed at all. I can highly recommend this fantastic book.

Author’s Blurb:

Matron Taylor grew up in Yorkshire but now lives in London. He is a design historian and works at the V&A museum, where he teaches on the History of Design programme and spends a lot of time trying to convince people that the luxury goods industry helped win the Second World War. He wrote a chapter on Edward Molyneux, inventor of the flapper dress, for the V&A’s London Couture book and has helped develop a number of projects for TV and radio. He also works at Imperial College, helping scientists communicate very complicated things in a reasonably simple way.

As well as working at various universities and museums around the world, Matson has worked on Camden Market, appeared in an Italian TV commercial, and been a pronunciation coach for Catalan opera singers. Mayson completed the Faber writing course, during which he wroteThe Miseducation of Evie Epworth. All About Evie is his second novel.

I hope you have enjoyed this warm, funny and charming novel about confidence in yourself, adapting to big changes and having fun along the way. If you are wanting a copy of this wonderful book you can find this in Waterstones, any independent store and of course on Amazon. I will leave you now to say Happy Reading and see you all soon!!!
