Fiesty Seniors

The three ladies in Ladies of Covington Send Their Love have been sent out to pasture by their families. They are leading depressing lives in a retirement boarding house. When Amelia inherits a house in Covington, N.C.; she, Hannah and Grace make a "jail break" just to check it out. What they discover is that they aren't ready to settle down, to be safely taken care of until they die. They find they have a lot of life yet to live. They decide to stay at the house in Covington over the objections of family and friends. This is the story of the new lives and friends they make.

Medlicott's book will appeal to fans of Jan Karon's Mitford series. If you like this novel, there are several sequels. Medlicott's web page.
