BOOK TOUR: eighty and out, by Kim Cano

Traumatized by visits to the nursing home to see their elderly aunt, Louise and her sister Jeannie made a youthful pact to not live past age eighty. Was it a silly childhood idea, or were they wise beyond their years? Most importantly, will they go through with it when the time comes?

Eighty and Out Editorial Review: “An emotionally-charged women’s fiction novel about the bond between sisters, friendship, and fate, Eighty and Out will have you deliberating your destiny.” ~ Bestselling author Deborah Brown

Available to buy from....

My Review:  I LOVE this book! The story of the lives of Louise and Jeannie, along with Lou's best friend Bernice, is so emotional and honest.  We get to see the good and the bad, and we're always wondering whether or not it will end with the sisters carrying out their pact.
I found myself wanting to lecture the girls at times on their decisions. There are secrets and lies, and their lives are touched by racism, war, riots and feminism along with all the "normal" life events: love, marriage, babies, death, divorce.

This is one of the best women's fiction stories I've read in a long while. I would recommend it to all my female friends.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

My Rating: Five stars
