A Funny and heart warming read with some really lovely characters (major tom) and an interesting storyline. A great read if you want something abit different
I enjoyed this gentle heart warming read. Jennifer wanted a fresh start and has started a new course at university. As her university halls of residence are not ready she takes up a room at Sunset Promenade retirement home. Here the residents and the students have to work through their differences and be prepared to learn from each other. Jenny is also faced with deciding who she is going to be. She is working through her issues whilst the home is faced with closure. Rescue comes from an unusual source and Jenny is forced to face her ‘demons’.
