Effie Leland Wilder revists the wacky cast of characters at FairAcres Retirement Home.

Join everybody's favorite busybody, Hattie McNair, and her fellow residents at the FairAcres Retirement Home on another uplifting adventure!

Knee replacement surgery doesn't slow down the irrepressible Hattie McNair. This time around, she and her fellow residents at the FairAcres Retirement Home are involved in money-making schemes: they enter a car-naming contest and organize a storytelling night to raise money for a swimming pool. There is also mystery in the air when the sour-looking portrait of the retirement home corporation founder, affectionately known as "old Pukey Face," goes missing, True to form, Hattie makes it her business to get to the bottom of it. And with warm-hearted encouragement (and a little meddling) she lends a hand to her third-grade friend Amanda and her family during a difficult time.

With grace and humor Wilder gently pokes fun at growing older, all the while reflecting on the special wisdom gained from aging, and the challenges and losses that must be faced.
