Title: The Company of Old Ladies
Genre: Upmarket women's
In this coming-of-OLD-age novel, a sixty-something woman stumbles upon a young destitute Asian man and vows to be his benefactor until his funds arrive. She invites him to stay with her and her equally unconventional roommate in a senior high-rise. But when he moves in a malicious young woman, when valuable items start vanishing, and when her friend becomes deathly ill, she must either trust him or risk his taking advantage of her good will. An Asian Tom Sawyer mixes it up with two aging members of the Ya-Ya sisterhood.
