Retirement doesn’t spell the end after all, in this rousing journey through loss and rebirth Max has lived a long and fulfilling life. He and his wife were star trapeze artists and acrobats in the Brandon Brothers circus. But with her passing, he’s left alone in New York, and suffers a heart attack after a terrifying mugging. Without family to fall back on, Max is forced to leave his beloved Manhattan for a rest home in Westchester. He fears it will be the end of him—but in this stirring novel, retirement means a new beginning. In Westchester, Max meets Lettie, a kind widow, and the rambunctious and intelligent Alison, her daughter. And through a new gig teaching juggling and stunts at a local middle school, and new relationships with unexpected allies in the boring suburbs, Max discovers that it’s never too late to have a fresh start.
