Book Review of Out to Pasture: But Not over the Hill (Fairacres, Bk 1)

Out to Pasture: But Not over the Hill (Fairacres, Bk 1)
reviewed on

Sweet stories from an assisted living/nursing home, the first novel written by 85-year-old Wilder. Written like a journal, the writing is simple, with some injected humor and just enough plot to keep you reading to the end. I liked the book because of the insights it provides into aging, especially of those who have been forced to or chosen to live in a home that's the exclusively domain of the aged. I discovered this book when delivering library books to our community assisted living facility. The resident to whom I delivered the book passed away about four weeks ago. As light-hearted as the book seems, it engendered some serious discussion in our local book club this past week.
