Three Things About Elsie (e-book), by Joanna Cannon – Release Date: 8/7/18
Synopsis: There are three things you should know about Elsie. The first thing is that she’s my best friend. The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better. And the third thing…might take a bit more explaining.
Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, she thinks about her friend Elsie and wonders if a terrible secret from their past is about to come to light. If the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died sixty years ago?
From the acclaimed, bestselling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, Three Things About Elsie is a story about forever friends on the twisting path of life. As we uncover their buried secrets, we learn how the fine threads of humanity connect us all.
First of all, I am loving stories with at least one elderly character. Could it be my own “aging,” or am I recognizing that stories crossing generational and age lines are just more interesting? At any rate, I am eager to get my hands on this one.
