I read this back in 2002 and probably should re-read it. I remember really liking the voice of the narrator. I also remember a sweet "senior citizen" love story that was quite enjoyable. Read full review

User Review  - Kim Whitley-Gaynor - Goodreads

I bought this book decades ago at an Austin Public Library book sale, and it's sat on my bookshelves for many years untouched. I wish I had read it earlier. I just loved it. I hope when I grow old that I'm as spunky and lively and opinionated as the narrator. Read full review
