What is it about another person that sometimes makes friendship instantaneous? Despite differences in both age and background Bella and Evelyn meet and when Evelyn announces, ‘What I’d like is to be buried naturally straight in the earth with a tree planted on my grave,’ they find they are able to discuss some of life’s big issues.
Evelyn’s husband Earl has been cremated and is apparently “waiting” for Evelyn. She wants none of that for herself. ‘You don’t have to be embalmed you know, with all that fuss and poison. And it’s so expensive! No, the thing is, you can be buried straight in the ground and make good compost.’
