Romance In The Old Folks Home

Romance In The Old Folks Home thoughtfully and compassionately explores the issue of courting in a mature, in-house environment.

According to author Dr. Joanne Nelson King Brown, you can have fun and find love at any age. But did you know that love is wonderful in old age? Some people don’t know that. Ill health often accompanies old age but knowledge, experience, patience and an understanding of what is important in life does too. Brown explains that her book, Romance In The Old Folks Home ($20.99, paperback, 9781613793145), is as funny as old people in love are. Her heart-warming and delightful writing style modernly articulates the splendor of love in the older phase of life.

Everybody understands the reality that being alone can be a blessing or a curse. Romance In The Old Folks Home thoughtfully and compassionately explores the issue of courting in a mature, in-house environment, if it’s worth marrying at an older age and the curiosity that is associated with the uncertain amount of years one may have with their companion. Brown realistically notes that sometimes these unions last longer than couples in their twenties and thirties! Romance In The Old Folks Home reveals that Cupid, equipped with his arrows, visits the Old Folks Homes as often as he visits high schools and work places. Love has no age limit; he shoots his arrows everywhere. This is a funny and entertaining true story about when Cupid shot his arrows inside the author’s own old folks’ home.

Dr. Joanne Nelson King Brown admits that she can attest to romance in the old folks’ home because she lived it and it is true! She was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington. Brown received her education at Northwest Christian University, Butler Seminary, Phillips University, Drew University and College of Languages in San Jose, Costa Rica. She received her Doctor of Divinity degree from the Universal Bible College in Texas. Brown has been married and widowed three times and currently resides in Salem, Oregon in an Independent Living Retirement Center.
