The classic novel from Michener, in trade paperback for the first time, featuring a new introduction by Steve Berry.

In his stunning novel, bestselling novelist James A. Michener draws on his unparalleled gift for storytelling, his deep understanding of American society, and his own life experiences to illuminate the challenges of aging and the folly of youth in a Florida retirement home known as the Palms.

As the new, young director of the Palms, Andy Zorn suffers no shortage of loving support and wise advice from his “elders,” a group of five passionate, outspoken residents who refuse to accept the passive roles that both society and family have handed them. Yet past scandal has driven Zorn to despondency, until he meets an extraordinary young woman in the rehab wing, who has been forced to rebuild her life in the face of crippling injuries. Now Zorn finds himself falling in love—and with the help and gentle jabs from his more mature friends, he discovers a wonderful new purpose in life….
