33 Retirees, 7 Lessons, 1 Life Changing Journey
Samantha, a struggling, young, freelance writer, receives a cryptic call from her mother stating that her favorite aunt is not well. Concerned, she visits Aunt Cindy, only to find that, although the eighty-four-year-old is in good health, she has had little success managing her personal finances and is now on the verge of losing her home, which has been the setting for many of their family’s fondest memories. Desperate for answers, Sam put her investigative reporter s skills to work on a quest that takes her across America to meet, face-to-face with retirees and learn how financial errors have negatively affected their lives. Sam soon realizes there are not nearly as many mistakes as she had imagined. In fact, there are only seven. Her trip is a leap of faith that brings her to the brink of ruin both financially and emotionally. Then again, it may just be the story of a lifetime.
