Traumatized by visits to the nursing home to see their elderly aunt, Louise and her sister Jeannie made a youthful pact to not live past age eighty. Was it a silly childhood idea, or were they wise beyond their years? Most importantly, will they go through with it when the time comes?
Eighty and Out Editorial Review:
“An emotionally-charged women’s fiction novel about the bond between sisters, friendship, and fate, Eighty and Out will have you deliberating your destiny.” ~ Bestselling author Deborah Brown
“As with all of Kim Cano’s books that I have read, you become mesmerized by the story, a beautiful, gentle story of coming of age, love, loss, despair and happiness.” – Beck Valley Books
This is a book that I just could not put down. We follow the life of Lou and her sister Jeannie. They have a childhood pact to not live past 80. “80 and out” is the name of their pact.
This is a story that has celebrations and sadness like anyone does. This story reads like a movie or a true life account of someone’s life. It’s a true coming of age story.
I found myself so engrossed in the story and wanting to see what happens next. The book moves in just the right pace. It’s not too slow and not too fast.
There were things that happened within the story line that I did not see coming. I love when that happens and it keeps me invested and wanting to read more and more.
