The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Now a major motion picture starring Jude Dench, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith.
When Ravi Kapoor, an overworked London doctor, reaches the breaking point with his difficult father-in-law, he asks his wife: “Can’t we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away.” His prayer is seemingly answered when Ravi’s entrepreneurial cousin sets up a retirement home in India, hoping to re-create in Bangalore an elegant lost corner of England. Several retirees are enticed by the promise of indulgent living at a bargain price, but upon arriving, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once sophisiticated hotel has stalled, and that such amenities as water and electricity are . . . infrequent. But what their new life lacks in luxury, they come to find, it’s plentiful in adventure, stunning beauty, and unexpected love.
I can only hope the movie stays true to this marvelous story. Wonderful characters! Finally a story for us Seniors!

I was so looking forward to reading this book and sadly I found it a little depressing. Not sure if I will even bother to see the film, even though it has a fantastic cast.
