Book Review: Eighty and Out by Kim Cano

Book Review

Eighty and Out

Kim Cano

Back in the 1950s, when my younger sister Jeannie and I were kids, we made a pact not to live past age 80.
We'd seen our Aunt Violet waiting to die in the nursing home, and we decided that wouldn't happen to us. We'd live life to the fullest and go out on our own terms.
Little did we know what fate had in store for us.

My 5-Star Review:

Growing up in the 1950s, Louise and her little sister, Jeannie lived the typical family life with their parents in the busy city of Chicago. But Louise always dreamed of living on a ranch in the southwest and owning horses. She knew that was her destiny. One of the most dreaded things Louise had to do was visit her Aunt Violet in the nursing home. While she thought her aunt was nice, she hated the smell and seeing all the older people just waiting to die. She and Jeannie made a pact: They would live their lives to the fullest and go out on their own terms at eighty. But life doesn’t always go exactly as planned.

Eighty and Out is a well-written novel with interesting characters and a unique storyline. The story begins with the girls as children and follows them throughout their lives. We experience their highs and lows, joyful times, heartaches, and disappointments. Dreams change and sometimes hope fades, but Louise stays strong through it all. It is a heartfelt story that readers of women’s fiction novels are sure to enjoy.
