(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 31, 2018 ) Madeline Avery has her hands full with the residents of the Orchard Pines retirement home. From sit-ins, food fights, resident romances, an English lord, and a killer on the loose, this manager faces a constant barrage of challenges. Kay Rickenbaughs new novel, Dear Tallulah, takes a humorous look at aging gracefullywith a sense of adventure! The book has been published by Outskirts Pressthe fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.
Orchard Pines Residence and Spa is not your typical group retirement home. Located in the small community of Slocum, Georgia, it provides a variety of apartment styles and ameneties, including gardening space for those who want it, and residents are free to come and go as they please as long as they check in with the receptionist. Orchard Pines is a nice quiet, comfortable living facility for senior citizens.
Most residents, however, still have a mind of their own and are not ready for peace and quiet. Madeline, the manager, tries her best to keep control of things, but there are constant challengesfood fights in the dining room, a sit-in demonstration (complete with chains) over a demand for poached eggs for breakfast, a resident who is almost murdered, wine disguised as cranberry juice, romances among the residents and a questionable activities director.
In addition the men have formed an organization, The Macho Men, and the ladies have retaliated with The Ladybugs, leading to an in-house rivalry between the sexes. All of this is recorded daily in a journal by Emily Saunders, a new resident who soon finds that life at Orchard Pines is more than she bargained for!
Dear Tallulah will bring the reader to laughter and tears The over-50 crowd, especially, may be inspired to start looking for their own Orchard Pines Residence and Spa for their golden years. Its also a great blueprint for a chain of retirement communities.
