One choice for this stay was Debbie Macomber's "16 Lighthouse Road". It is the first of the twelve novels in the Cedar Cove Series, which centres on an interesting group of people in a small town in Washington State. All of the titles in this series are the street addresses of the main character of that novel. ("16 Lighthouse Road", "201 Rosewood Lane", "311 Pelican Court", etc). Gayle loved that special touch and enjoyed reading about good ordinary people. It was light reading for Gayle, but perfect for a stay in long-term care.
Debbie Macomber is a very prolific author of contemporary women's fiction. Her books can be read by any age in any circumstance. Many of her books have been made into T.V. movies. She writes about family and relationships- just what women are interested in!
