…Reveals Much About the Human Condition

“Following Eddie and his friends as they navigate a new phase of their lives reveals much about the human condition–what it is like to confront loss, what it means to find a new direction and how sometimes we have to let go of who we thought we were, in order to become who we really are. All this is handled during and after an octogenarian road trip, showing we can find truth in the most unlikely of places.”

A Must-Read!
“Ms. Roberts book, Oldsters, is a wonderfully complex story that was almost impossible to put down. Her well-written story interweaves the lives and loves of her characters while exploring themes of happiness, fear, sadness and redemption. It is not often that I can be drawn into the world of a story, but…I highly recommend Oldsters! Well done, I look forward to reading more from her!” ~ Verified Five-Star Amazon Review
