Is a simple life too much to ask for?
Ben thinks the retirement home where he works should be called “Heaven Can Wait a Little Longer While I Golf” instead of Heritage Gardens. But who asked him? He’s just the janitor, after all. Of course, his inept boss, the cantankerous residents, and even his attractive podiatrist friend don’t know one important thing about him: he was recently a cardiothoracic surgeon, not a broom-pushing custodian.
Ben is in search of a stress-free life with a little freedom from the past thrown in. But will it be that simple to escape who he used to be—and all he used to fear?
Pr1me of Life is P.D. Bekendam's debut book and it is a HIT! Ben works at Heritage Gardens as a janitor. Ben has worked there for 3 years and has gotten to know the residents very well. Everyone who interacts with Ben likes him. What they don't know is three years ago Ben was a Cardiothoracic surgeon. Ben leaves his home and practice to find a stress free life and that is what brings him to Heritage Gardens. Ben finds himself in the middle of some interesting things that makes his normally ordered life crazy.
I loved Pr1me of Life. As P.D. Bekendam's debut novel it is fantastic. P.D. Bekendam writes with authority on geriatric and cardiothoracic medicine, retirement home life, and OCD. I loved all the characters he has written. They are hilarious and loveable. As I read the book I felt like I knew them all. From the start this book grabbed my attention and kept it throughout, couldn't put it down! I found myself laughing out loud in parts and crying in others. I really felt a connection with this book and enjoyed it. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction, you will not be disappointed. I look forward to reading what P.D. Bekendam writes next! Definitely a must read author for me. I give this book 5 STARS.
