Abstract:

Wilder, a resident of the Presbyterian Retirement Home in North Carolina, puts her observations of her fellow retirees to good use in this charming novel. Written as if it were the memoirs and correspondence of an elderly woman named Hattie McNair residing in the Fair Acres Retirement Home, this fiction is a neatly spun portrait of some kind and gentle elderly men and women and a few bad apples. Hattie is a busybody, though a pleasant and well-intentioned one. She manages to have the handyman tutored in literacy and secures for him a new residence for his growing family. Along the way, she describes the nut cases, the physically failing residents, and several determined souls like herself. A touching portrayal that breathes deserved life into an overlooked generation.
