But each person has his or her personal demons to combat. Theres Sadie, who struggles with her love for her children while rejecting their religious fundamentalism; widower Gerald, who hopes to end his loneliness by being part of the group; retired social worker David, who needs to lose at least fifty pounds to keep his diabetes under control; and free-spirited Britt, who is looking for a new adventure.
The community isnt without its adventures. Cody, a chronically homeless elder, wanders into their lives telling stories of making moonshine, while the groups nurse, Stephen, exposes them to his world as a Cherokee Indian. But it is perhaps the love affair between Ben and Britt that consumes the group most as they try to search out the leaning of life in their twilight years.
Funny, sincere, and entertaining, Kelly House delivers an intriguing glimpse into the unique experiences of the elderly.
