Older but wilder: more notes from the pasture
Knee replacement surgery hasn't slowed down the irrepressible Hattie McNair. This time around, she and her fellow "inmates" at FairAcres Home involve themselves in a couple of lively money-making schemes in hopes of raising funds to build a swimming pool for "The Home". And a mystery develops when the sour-looking portrait of the home's founder disappears. With grace and humor, Wilder gently pokes fun at growing older, all the while reflecting on the challenges and losses that seniors face -- as well as the special wisdom that can be gained from aging.
