Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious antics of senior lesbians in Australia OWL Haven retirement village sounds like a fabulous place for lesbians to live out their golden years in Australia. The residents don’t let their age dictate limitations in how they live their lives. Some of their antics are laugh out loud hilarious including one that takes place during a Tupperware demonstration. All thru the book I laughed cried and cared about these characters. The snippets they reveal about coming out, falling in love, navigating relationships and careers in homophobic times in their younger years are an excellent reminder of how strong and determined they needed to be in order to survive and even thrive in that kind of hostile environment. They are inspiring and refreshing to read along with the strong friendships and other relationships they have with their neighbours in OWL Haven; these are women who care about each other, have each other’s backs in times of need, and know how to have a good time. Witnessing all of that in the book was an absolute pleasure. I only wish there was a way for the back stories alluded to to be expanded on or for there to be a follow up story or series of short stories to reconnect with these characters again outside of this book. It was tough to let them all go by the end of the final chapter. There is a bit of Aussie slang in the story but nothing too mysterious for Non-Aussie readers. If you’re wanting to read great characters who have led colorful and exciting lives, are still having the time of their lives in their later years, and who will make you laugh and cry in equal measure, give this one a read. I hope the author revisits these characters at some point and that she also writes more stories about other characters in the future; she knows how to tell an entertaining and engaging story.
