Summary
Award-winning author Jill McCorkle takes us on a splendid journey through time and memory in this, her tenth work of fiction. Life After Life is filled with a sense of wonder at our capacity for self-discovery at any age. And the residents, staff, and neighbors of the Pine Haven retirement center (from twelve-year-old Abby to eighty-five-year-old Sadie) share some of life'''s most profound discoveries and are some of the most true-to-life characters that you are ever likely to meet in fiction. Delivered with her trademark wit, Jill McCorkle'''s constantly surprising novel illuminates the possibilities of second chances, hope, and rediscovering life right up to the very end. She has conjured an entire community that reminds us that grace and magic can'''and do'''appear when we least expect it.''
Summary
The staff and residents at Fulton, North Carolina's retirement facility, share the realities of their lives, from a prominent lawyer who feigns dementia to escape life with his son, to a woman who keeps a scrapbook of every local crime
