it was amazing

It is very unusual to read a book with a protagonist who is nearing eighty. Peggy a widow has settled into Jacandra retirement village in Australia and has reconciled herself to a life of wearing beige, and days filled with aqua aerobics, doctor's visits and committee meetings. However her life is turned upside down when her thrice married friend Angie moves into the village.
Angie has very different ideas about aging and sets about organising a fashion show and karaoke evening. Can the single ladies find love and friendship before its too late.
This is a very life affirming book and the characters leapt off the page. The writer is a G.P. so I also felt it presented a realistic picture of aging gracefully or disgracefully. I felt I at least wanted to visit Jacandra retirement village.

Disclosure I received a proof copy from Net gallery.
