More informationJim Downing is a seventy-year-old man living in a nursing home in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He is not there by choice, but his poor health has required it. For different reasons, he never married and is alone in the world. His family lives far from him and is unable to assist him in any way.
His life takes a quick change when a new health professional enters into his life and squelches the cynical ways he has developed over the ten years at Whispering Pines.
Oddly enough, he develops a love for her, but feels he must hide it for fear of being seen simply as an old man infatuated with a younger woman.
But when a miraculous event occurs later in Jim's life, he gets another chance at living and finding a true love.
