  • Out Of This World!

    I am thrilled to have spent a few days in the delightful company of Evie Epworth, the heroine of Matson Taylor's début novel, The Miseducation of Evie Epworth. What a hoot this novel turned out to be! Set in Yorkshire in 1962, sixteen-year-old, Adam Faith-loving, Evie lives with her widowed dad, Arthur, and Christine, a woman who is set on marrying him. Evie is not a fan, and thinks her father can do much better, and she also needs to decide what she wants to do with her own life now that she's finished school. What happens next is exceptionally compelling... Matson Taylor has crafted a wonderful set of characters and placed them around an incredibly likeable narrator, who needs to understand her past before she can progress to the future. As well as Evie herself, I loved Christine, Vera (Christine's mum) who were the comedy baddies, and elderly neighbour, Mrs Scott-Pym and her daughter Caroline. Evie had a special relationship with the Scott-Pyms, and Evie's influence on helping to mend bridges whist building her own was really rewarding. There was so much to adore in The Miseducation of Evie Epworth - it had warmth at its heart and the those witty and comical, side-splitting moments kept on coming. Originally hailing from Yorkshire and having spent time there on many occasions, the mention of Granada TV and Betty's tearooms had me grinning. Vibrant, well-paced and exquisitely characterised, The Miseducation of Evie Epworth is certainly not to be missed. The icing on the cake is that there is a sequel in the pipeline by Matson Taylor and I cannot wait until it arrives. I read The Miseducation of Evie Epworth by Matson Taylor in staves with other Pigeonholers as part of a group. Thank you to Matson Taylor and Pigeonhole for the opportunity to read this book. This review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Anachronisms

    I was 17, just about to be 18 so remember this period well. The anachronisms stood out but not my type of novel. Just too implausible.
