Seventy-eight year old Trinity thought that she was too old for falling in love, until she finds it in the most unlikely of places.

Trinity Davis is seventy-eight years old and has never been married. She spent her whole life living and breathing her career, but now, after being forced to retire, she realizes how much she’s missed. After seeing a brightly colored pamphlet for a dance at the senior center, she decides to go. What she doesn’t expect is to meet the soul mate that she has spent her entire life waiting for.

Trinity is 78 and has never been married. She devoted her whole life to her career; she was a great CEO. But now she’s been forced to retire. And she has no idea what to do with her life…

This is a very real problem that many older adults face and I wanted to see what Ms. Campbell did with the situation. She has written a really cute short story that demonstrates there is always more to life if you can open your heart and your mind to making a change. She writes about age with a good perspective; she must have some elderly people in her life.

She takes the bored, achy Trinity from a boring existence at home with nothing to do but watch TV and wait for the mail to a woman who is enticed by a green brochure for the senior center that says activities there are exciting. She’s cynical, but she’s going to give it a try. After all, the worst that could happen would be that she would be bored there, too.

The author then adds a nice gentleman who changes the way Trinity thinks of things. He gets her to dance, convinces her she doesn’t need to go to bed until after midnight, and she finds herself being drawn in. Ms. Campbell then adds a thief to the mix and the story gets much more exciting. I was enjoying the interplay between the two main characters but the confrontation with the thief worked very well with her story line.

This is a sweet easy read that goes well with a cup of coffee or tea and will make you smile. Why not buy a copy now and see what you think?
