If you are curious about how the elderly may think, why they may stop in the middle of doing something and look like they are lost or just concerned with treating them 'right', this is the book to read.

Every young person should read this book. And middle aged people who think they will never grow old, should read this book. It is written for every age bracket.

This is the first book that I read that was written from an elderly women point of view. The author did a good job capturing Ester's thoughts and the thoughts of the outside world.
Written well.
