Not Just Another Wrinkled Face by Barb McIntyre is a heartwarming story of the senior citizen community. Mary, Helen, Alice, Lise, Sandra, Paul and Phil are just a few of the residents of Morning Glory condominiums, where most residents are sixty-two or older. Each senior has a story to tell and we, the readers, get to share in their everyday lives. We quickly become fans of Mary’s pregnant granddaughter, her husband and Marge and Bernie (mom and dad). We cheer on Lise as she handles dogs messing on the lawn, root for Phil and Helen to not be discovered, and cry with Alice when she is sad. The rec room is where everyone meets and shares their stories, dreams and past, where they plot and plan, exercise, share food and become a family.

I loved Not Just Another Wrinkled Face and want to move into the condo with my new friends today. Barb McIntyre has portrayed the real, everyday life of being a senior citizen in a caring, tender, loving story. Not Just Another Wrinkled Face was a fast paced, easy read that made me smile or cry on every page. Not Just Another Wrinkled Face should be read by old-timers; you will find out your thoughts and feelings are shared. The youngsters reading this book will be rewarded with a great insight into the older members of your family. Yes, Not Just Another Wrinkled Face is the perfect book and deserves a five plus rating. Barb McIntyre should find herself on the top of the bestseller list very soon.
