Phoebe Caldwell (age 84) (Pavilion Publishers, 2017)
Phoebe Caldwell made the difficult decision to accept the inevitabilities of old age and leave the home she loved to move into sheltered accommodation.

As Phoebe tries to answer these and other questions she reflects on her past and shares her insights into life.
