Overview

Harold Harper is slowly losing his grip. Day by day, he loses ground in a battle with dementia, a hard fact his wife, Aileen, can neither ignore nor control. But then Alex Porter enters their lives.

Just two years out of college and trapped in an unfulfilling job, young Alex is an unlikely ally. He's also blessed with a rare, almost supernatural talent – and may just be the Harpers' last hope. Harold, Aileen and the magnetic Alex come together with an scatter-shot team of small-town neighbors, all bent on stalling Harold's decline and keeping the couple from losing it all. In the midst of their singular journey, the newfound friends laugh, hope, hurt, grow – and discover love in surprising ways.

“Misplaced Clarity” is a riveting tale of heartbreak, hope and self discovery, of seven lives that collide and intertwine for better and worse.

    Esther, Alex, and Wilton or "Dubya", work at the local grocery store in a small Illinois town. Their daytime boss is Roger Weatherly. Nobody likes him as he is bossy and not a nice man. To make it worse, Roger still lives at home with his retired father, Dan, who works as a bagger for the grocery store as his pension money was stolen. Esther has to have hip-replacement surgery and her granddaughter Beth arrives from California to care for her and work in her stead at the grocery store. Alex moves from his apartment to live with Aileen and Harold Harper and earn his keep by working around their huge old home as Aileen and Harold are aging, Harold may have Alzheimer's, and their son threatens to sell their beloved home and move them into senior living quarters. Dan has loved Esther for years, Beth really needs a teaching position, and Alex would love to be the town librarian. Will their wishes all come true?

    "Misplaced Clarity" is a delightful and well-written story of people's lives and how they impact upon one another in a small town. Esther, Dan, Beth, Dubya, Alex, Aileen and Harold are totally believable main characters as is sociopathic Roger who rages and strikes out against people. The plot develops well and runs smoothly to the story's conclusion and the dialogue throughout the entire book is just first-rate and will draw the reader into this story of friends and neighbors and lovers of long ago. "Misplaced Clarity" should be on readers' lists everywhere as it is a story whose characters run true to life and its zigzag path, who once again see clearly how to live their lives.
