Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the Rosehaven Convalescence Center in beautiful Listre, North Carolina. Recuperating after a recent fall, Lil Olive sits on the front porch, chitchatting with and rocking right alongside the regulars. Theres tiny Maudie Lowe with her cane that seems too tall; Beatrice Satterwhite, whose fancy three-wheeled walker is a Cadillac among Chevrolets; Clara Cochran, who cusses as frequently as she takes a breath; and L. Ray Flowers, the freelance preacher who strums a mean guitar, and who reveals his dream of forming a national movement to unite churches and nursing homes (“Nurches of America”). Keeping a watchful eye on them all is Carl, Lils middle-age bachelor nephew with a heart of gold and the patience of a saint. But Lil is restless, eager to get back to her own apartment. She wants some adventure. And before long, tranquil Rosehaven is turned upside down. . . .

Madam Pince, July 13, 2008 (view all comments by Madam Pince)
A moving chronicle of life's end, from the perspective of both the elderly and their caretakers. Clyde Edgerton's funny, accurate and sensitive tale of the varied residents of Rosehaven, a skilled nursing facility in Listre, North Carolina, is one of his best works ... ranking, in my opinion, with his masterpiece, Raney.
