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.
These seniors face (just as all people do) loneliness, family issues, loss, and joy. The author shows us how they react and deal with very human emotions as they move forward to build new friendships and relationships.
It’s a very worthwhile read, and you’ll be left waiting for the next installment in the series to see where they go next!
