We all fear loss of independence, aging, and death. Helen certainly does when she comes to live at Happiness Hollow, an assisted-living facility described by some residents as a cult in which they are ?killed with kindness.? Choosing the wrong path to maintain her independence, Helen finds her life and health going downhill. During her heart attack, however, she receives a powerful vision which renews her lagging faith and gives her a mission.
That mission is to use the seven sacraments in unorthodox ways to teach the Art of Living and the Art of Dying, and to liberate a small group of residents who, like her, have lost all joy, meaning, and purpose in their lives. Overcoming challenges, Helen and her group go on to revolutionize Happiness Hollow and beyond.
Aging and death are difficult topics to discuss, especially with those you love. This lighthearted story, replete with romance and mystery, follows this diverse band of residents as they derive peace and wisdom from their long histories, explore their fears and beliefs about death, find new strength and purpose, and create a positive and loving environment for themselves.
Happiness Hollow, with humor and probing questions, gently opens the way for introspection and discussion. The reading list at the end directs you to further resources.
