LOURING AGE - a chilling psychological glimpse into the terrors of old age - is a story for adults from acclaimed writer Laura L. Sullivan.

In her youth, Millie roamed the world, having adventures, taking lovers...
Now she is trapped by her body, penned in by her incredible age. Her mind is still sharp (or is it?) but her once vast world has narrowed to a daily hobble to the liquor store. Every day, Millie passes by a home for Alzheimer's patients. On a whim, she enters, and decides to fleece the easily-duped residents in card games. But before she can flee with her ill-gotten gains, she is captured... not by the law, but by a nurse, who believes she is one of the residents.

Thus begins a nightmare of sedation, surgery, and confinement. Trapped in another woman's life, Millie plots her escape from the institution. But even when she is home again, she finds neither peace nor safety.

With a powerful voice and subtle shifts in tense that mark the heroine's wandering mind, LOURING AGE is a frightening story of the way bodies and minds can betray us.
