by Roseanne Dowell is a delight-filled romp through the world of two septuagenarians, Elsa and Mike.
Life teaches you about the many types of people inhabiting this world we all co-exist in...and sometimes the most diabolical
talons of evil are attached to those we call family.
Elsa and Mike meet in the shank of the night...both residence of an upper scale
nursing home...and both are bored to tears with the regimented routine...bored to the point pranks become their salvation...and the musical backdrop for a romance no youngster could ever understand.
Geriatric Rebels is a delight...being one of the Geriatric mindset, I cheered for Elsa and Mike, hissed at Andrew and delighted in reading their journey through the Nursing Home minefield, that included a more then slightly deranged wanna-be and refuses not-to-be competitive suitor.
Energy, humor, playfulness, and learned wisdom all play active roles in the evolution of Elsa and Mike's reaching for their brass ring no matter what...and why not...they've lived long, and deserve it.
I am not going to give away the many plans, plots and adventures Elsa and Mike get into...but I am going to say I laughed, I cried, I got angry, and I grinned with wicked delight.
Therefore I grant with the joy of an elder reader who loves to see our age group portrayed as something more than withering mounds of wrinkling arthritis,this
Roseanne Dowell delight, Geriatric Rebels with
FIVE GLORIOUS STARS!
Well Done Roseanne.
