The Joy of Aging- Fadeout by Rolynn Anderson
I have the author of a book I am desperately trying to acquire still. This book has slowly become a must read for me. LOL Please welcome Rolynn Anderson, author of Fadeout, and sister Rose friend.
BELLA PROVES THE JOY OF AGING in FADEOUT, by Rolynn Anderson
(A novel about a boutique funeral planner whose clients refuse to rest in peace)
The brain doesn’t age, I’ve discovered. At least it doesn’t seem to age nearly as fast as our bodies do. That’s why one of my characters in FADEOUT, Bella Keller, dresses and acts twenty years younger than her age of 69. She’s slim and petite with a profusion of red, curly hair haloed around her head. Her skin is wrinkled and leather-looking from years of enjoying the outdoors, but she is so energetic and so positive, that her wrinkles are a joy to behold because they are placeholders for her smiles and reminders of her joy.
For fees and for free she has served as a home decorator (“home desecrator,” she calls herself) all her life. She’s itching to help the funeral planner three doors down, who hasn’t bought furniture for her house in the six months she’s lived there. That the woman is planning her husband’s memorial and has caught the fancy of her grandson, Roman Keller, makes her want to get to know Jan Solvang.
Though she mourns the passing of her husband, she continues to live her life fully, as Joe would have wanted it. But what should she do about the enormous secret she’s been keeping about her husband for more than forty years?
I can’t wait for you to befriend Bella when you read FADEOUT…and learn how she ‘desecrates’ and how well she keeps secrets.
Jan Solvang has spent her life avoiding conflict and commitment. Six months ago, she left a marriage proposal and a job in Seattle to care for her dying mother. Now she’s stuck with her mother’s California house and her mother’s dog, filling her mother’s shoes as a memorial planner with her estranged father.
Roman Keller thrives on conflict, writing documentaries that reveal the flaws of the famous. Jan’s challenge is to help him write a positive eulogy for a grandfather he disliked, but Roman is more interested in her other client: a powerful attorney with a dark past his family wants buried with him. If Jan stands behind the family and Roman goes for the exposé, who’s in danger and who wins?
The tension between them pulls tighter as each discovers the other is keeping secrets. But if they tell the truth, will they destroy any chance for love?
