AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"The life of 79-year-old pensioner Peggy Smart is as beige as the décor in her retirement village. Her week revolves around aqua aerobics and appointments with her doctor. The highlight of Peggy’s day is watching her neighbour Brian head out for his morning swim. She dreams of inviting the handsome widower to an intimate dinner. But why would an educated man like Brian, look twice at Peggy? As a woman of a certain age, she fears she has become invisible, even to men in their eighties.

"But a chance encounter with an old school friend she hasn’t seen in five decades — the glamorous fashionista Angie Valentine — sets Peggy on an unexpected journey of self-discovery."
