Bekendam, P.D. Prime of Life. Brentwood, TN: Worthy Publishing. 2014.
Ben works at Heritage Gardens even though he has been trained as a cardiothoracic surgeon. All he really wants is a simple life that is free of stress. He enjoys working with the residents and imposing order upon his janitorial cart – the simple things in life. But, his life is about to change when his secret is revealed: in his prime of life, he gave up a career as a surgeon to be a janitor…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Bekendam provides his reader with a novel that is both very humorous and extremely thought- provoking. The cast of characters that the reader meets in Heritage Gardens will provide the reader with moments of amusement. Ben’s obsession with order will create opportunity to chuckle, but perhaps most importantly, the reader will have several ponder points throughout the novel. Questions such as…what is truly important in life, how can I reduce my stress, am I too worried about other people’s opinions and many more will float through the reader’s mind. This book has the potential to serve as a great book club read, book discussion or devotion due to the many life questions that come up in the book.
