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....

Love the story
I’ve been a fan of his works for most of my life, did not know this one existed. Was pretty excited to learn about something he wrote about my backyard. Great story, just terrible narration. Would love to see if reproduced, would love to see Netflix pick it up as a series. Highly recommended regardless.
