Paperback

Price: $22.00

Overview

Liberty Lanes is a bowling alley in a small Montana town where a senior bowling league meets three times a week. Nelson Moore, one of the bowlers, has recently become a local hero by saving a teammate from choking on a happy hour chicken bone. Now he must deal with his newfound fame while coping with the early stages of dementia.

This is an engaging and often moving novel about a group of senior citizens bound together by old friendships and romances, and by their determination to live life to its fullest. Senescence is not for sissies, but these characters show us that it is still a time to love, dream, and explore their own potential.

Reviews

"I found this novel moving and original, filled with characters I cared about deeply. I also admired the author's treatment of small-town life. Southwest Montana comes alive on the page, filled with quirky shops and regional vacation destinations and a local newspaper that takes itself far too seriously. But Troy doesn't treat this subject matter as either precious or sentimental. It's just a place to live, and the characters who have lived here for many years know how it works." – Pamela Johnston, author of Little Lost River
