About the Book

Faith Green's comfortable existence as owner of Boutique Magnifique begins unraveling when her beloved mother is seriously injured and confined to a nursing home for rehabilitation. When well enough to leave, but still unfit to live alone, Mimi is moved to Harmony Hall, a home for elderly ladies of limited means. During her first year there, Mimi learns that a congregate environment can be much more interesting than living alone. Over the same period, Faith watches her rebellious goddaughter blossom through her association with Harmony Hall. Faith's gal-about-town best friend, also influenced by Mimi's new living situation, undergoes her own emotional rehabilitation. The retirement home's employees, determined to keep their residents happy, face challenges both humorous and heartbreaking during Mimi's first year.

An eye opener for children of aging parents and seniors reluctant to leave their homes, Harmony Hall reveals both the positive and poignant aspects of retirement living through the interconnected and unexpected experiences of its residents, staff and family members.
