"Breathes with suspense, providing along the way piercing, poetic descriptions, countless tiny mysteries, and breathtaking little reveals... a rich portrait of old age and friendship stretched over a fascinating frame."

"A tender and charismatic look into life in a nursing home. Cannon effortlessly captures the home's slow routines, along with the ways that staff and residents coexist but often know little about each other . . . This heartfelt tale of friendship and aging explores letting go of the past in order to live fully in the present."
