Perfect for anyone who is interested in matters dealing with aging and giving up independence. Lots of fun but insightful storylines.

I was captivated with T J Richards' story from the start. She writes in a beautifully literary manner as she captures the texture of the human dimension through the rich lives of her ordinary characters. Her writing style is beautiful. The story is poignant and compelling. She utilizes her wonderful craft as she weaves tales of the intertwining lives of her characters with insight and compassion. It is the story of a elderly woman named Clara who is reminiscing on the eve of going into a retirement home. She had always wanted to die in her own home, but she has sadly resigned herself to a different fate. One by one, she recalls the lives that have touched hers. As she does so, she realizes the fullness of experience that she has shared with those from her past. What is wonderful about the book is how T J Richards weaves the stories of each of these individuals who Clara recalls. In so doing, she captures the essence of their individual and mutual pasts in a brilliant manner that speaks to the strength of the human spirit. As the author of a spiritually-themed book, I especially loved this aspect of the book. TJ Richards obviously has a deep spiritual understanding that is translated throughout the pages of this tenderly written book. The story will open windows of understanding for the plight of the elderly. It will especially be illuminating for adult children who may be considering what might be best for their elderly parents. I give this book a resounding thumbs up. It is a story that you will never forget. Davis Aujourd'hui author of The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude
