Oh, My Goodness!
More Surprises From FairAcresBook - 2001
Welcome back to FairAcres! Here's another inspiring and humorous hit from Effie Leland Wilder, featuring Hattie McNair and her lovable cohorts at FairAcres Retirement Home. ATHE AGE OF NINETY-TWO and with more than 500,000 copies of her four best-selling books in print, you'd think that author Effie Leland Wilder would be content to rest on her laurels. Fortunately, in response to the floods of letters requesting another visit to FairAcres, Mrs. Wilder invites us back for another delightfully uplifting and entertaining adventure. In her familiar journal entries, Hattie takes note of the laughter that lighten the days of her fellow FairAcre "inmates" as well as the tears at the loss of loved ones. Familiar neighbor Mr. C. befriends a young man with some legal troubles and sets him back on the right path, with the assistance of Hattie and company. The residents pitch in to help build a house for a FairAcres employee, demonstrating the same indomitable spirit that has made Wilder's previous books so popular. And Hattie's writing success continues as she enters a short story contest. With grace and humor Wilder gently pokes fun at growing older, all the while reflecting on the special wisdom gained from aging, and the challenges and losses that must be faced.
