A begrudging son, an old runaway, and an unlikely romance = Prairie Sunset

 

Enter the peaceful home of Cynthia and John Warren Jr. Their lives disrupted a while back when John Sr. suffered a stroke and constant care was needed for the old man.

 

One step into John Sr.’s bedroom and the built-up emotional turmoil his son feels for him is immediately felt. For reasons of his own, John Sr. never makes a move to better himself or to show his son he is trying. Fed up with the situation, John blurts out to his father in a fit of rage that he’s going to the old folks home come Monday. And this is where the book’s truly magical read begins.

 

In a cold and blistery snowstorm, John Sr. decides to run away from home, to recapture a part of his youth. Grandpa’s need to live one last joyful time by himself finds him in an unsuspecting woman’s path. Not too far down the road, he spots a big van on the curb. As luck would have it, this fate chance will end up teaming John and the outspoken and free-spirited van owner, Attie, down a path of adventure every senior citizen would envy.

 

Eric Wilder’s heartfelt family drama will have you standing up and cheering for this dynamic duo and their escapades to elude the police force out gunning to capture them. John Jr. has his reasons for setting the countryside’s force out to look for his dad. However, this secret passion to find his dad slowly begins to eat away at him, distancing him from his family more and more.

 

The ever popularity of John Sr. ‘running away from home’ begins to attract a cheering group, those who decide to help Attie and John sneak away from the cops.

 

This compelling story to find out the end result had me reading nonstop. The escapades and the sexual awakening John Sr. experiences are tender moments explicitly well written by Eric Wilder. At first glance, I believed Prairie Sunset to be a cowboy setting. How wrong I was and how delightfully surprised I was to read the adventures of two senior citizens.

 

I highly recommend this book for one and all to remind us adventure and the need to live life to its fullest has no age boundaries.
