Traumatized by visits to the nursing home to see their elderly aunt, Louise and her sister Jeannie made a youthful pact to not live past age eighty. Was it a silly childhood idea, or were they wise beyond their years? Most importantly, will they go through with it when the time comes?
Eighty and Out Editorial Review:
“An emotionally-charged women’s fiction novel about the bond between sisters, friendship, and fate, Eighty and Out will have you deliberating your destiny.” ~ Bestselling author Deborah Brown
What to say about Eighty and Out…
I loved it. I couldn’t put it down.
The book follows Lou (short for Louise) from a young girl visiting her great aunt in the nursing home to her being that favorite aunt and great aunt.
I felt that I could relate to with Lou – she had so many trials to overcome. She suffered more loss than one can expect to survive. For me, I have lost so many people in my life that I felt every emotion she did.
Every time she seemed to go one step forward, something else would knock her on her rear.
But, she never gave up.
Lou was a fighter.
Eighty and Out puts you right in time with the characters and you can not only live the smell of the nursing home (especially if you have ever been to one) but can feel the love, the pain, the loss, the hurt, the betrayal that occurs throughout the book.
This isn’t your typical love story romance read. It’s not a mystery. It is a straight women’s fiction novel that follows the life of a girl into a woman.
Honestly, this is one to keep on the shelves and read again.
