Fred Scheske was born in Waukegan, Illinois and lived there for thirty-two years. He faced life changing decisions upon the death of his wife after forty-eight years of marriage. This novel reflects lifestyle changes one might experience after a loved one passes on.
The death of a spouse ultimately leads the survivor to the question: What am I going to do now? Long after losing his wife Cynthia to cancer, widower David Fields finally faced that question. He sat alone one day and determined he must change his monastic lifestyle and move on in life. Calling upon his management background he weighed options, made a decision and formulated a plan. Step one – sell his home with all of its memories and memorabilia. It would not be easy but he knew to effect a meaningful lifestyle change it had to be done. Step two – relocate to a retirement center. Moving would be difficult and would require major adjustments in his lifestyle. Step three – join group events and activities. Living alone for years would entail much effort to achieve this step. His complex decision led to dramatic change for David: He found new friends, companions, adventure and intrigue.
