Review of ‘Eating Life by Beth Burnett

Eating Life


Beth Burnett has written a beautiful story of a group of diverse characters whose connections to each other are vital to their happiness. Megan works in the corporate world but is forever linked to her free spirited best friend Casey. At opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of responsibility they give each other something essential. Anna has huge problems but can’t see a way to solve them herself. Brilliant is an accomplished photographer but true love evades her. Ben had that love but despairs and can’t see any light in his future . How each of them impact the other is at the heart of this emotionally-impactful novel. I loved Casey as she was so open and caring and there for people when they needed her.  One of the other characters I was not so keen on but I can’t imagine anyone would like this particular person.  She was apt to make the blood boil and showed the true skill of the author in creating such a character.  It is at times heart-wrenching and I found myself so affected by the writing. There is also joy and love and acceptance. I loved this book and can’t recommend it highly enough.


I was given this ARC by Sapphire Books Publishing in return for an honest review.
