Editorial Reviews

Review Review
This is the second book of an "Autumn in the Desert Series" written about residents of the Palm Lakes Senior Community. I read the first novel and loved it and enjoyed this sequel. There are relatively few books written for and about seniors with relevant and interesting problems--this is a great one. It helps the reader to explore her/his own ideas and feelings about growing older, and other challenges we might face. I think that anyone would enjoy this book except perhaps young adults, unless they were interested in issues of those who were aging.

I particularly loved how the relationships in the senior community were portrayed. Some of them were edifying, some were transient, some worked out well, others were predatory--just like in our lives (I am a baby boomer). Examples of these issues would be the loss of one's home, financial challenges with changes in circumstances, the responsibilities of taking care of aging parents, issues with adult children, intimate relationships in later middle age, etc.

I particularly liked how unusual facets of life were explored, like dowsing and learning to trust one's intuition, alternative health care for aging issues, energy healing, network marketing, starting a business when one is older, and more.

It really was a fun, light, and worthwhile read. I am not into romances at all, and I particularly enjoyed how some of the characters who had had difficult marriages found hope and intimacy later in life; I found these portrayals very realistic.

I am sure that this author writes what she knows, and she did a fantastic job with this series. I too am looking forward to part three!

Highly recommended, but mainly for baby boomers.
-O. Merce Brown

From the Author

In Second Chances, book 2 of the Autumn In The Desert series, old characters return and new ones appear, each battling their own demons in the form of addictions, money problems and loneliness. Romance, betrayal and new beginnings abound. Residents find happiness by challenging convention, having courage and thinking in new ways.

Maggie McPhee based Palm Lakes Senior Community on her experiences living in an age-restricted community in Arizona in the 1990s. Age 42 when she moved to Arizona, Maggie had the chance to live among people who were mostly 55 and over, giving her a unique perspective on the attitudes and behavior of retired folks. What she learned was that no matter how old you are, you long for happiness, love and success, just like your younger counterparts. Life was simpler then, but one thing never changes: each day you get up and have a chance to create a better ending to your life story, no matter what your age.
