Review by: Tina Lazaro on June 20, 2014 :
Absolutely loved this book. It was humorous and heart felt, I can't wait to read the other books to this series. Alice is awesome! Love her witty way!
Refreshing to read something that could be close to home and understand how each person feels in the situation, especially Alice! Beautiful story.
Thank you for sharing it with the world.

Review by: tony parsons on Jan. 30, 2014 :
Karen was taking her mom Alice Williams to a retirement home. Melanie Moth (RN) & is the wing manager. Alice meets the gardener & Ruby.

How will everyone convince Alice to stay?

Cool book cover, great font, writing style. A unique fairly well written culturally short story (book). Lots of interesting delightful/sad twists/turns. Very easy to read/follow & never a dull moment from start/finish. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. I assume the author (writer) meant to leave the reader hanging. That said I will still rate the short story (book) with 5 stars.

Thank you for the free book (short story)
