What Are Some of the Best Newer Books for Seniors?

By , 9:00 am on

Many seniors love to curl up with a good book as their main source of entertainment, but sometimes it can be difficult to determine which newer reading selections might appeal to their age group. If your elderly loved one is an avid reader, the Lincoln, CA, elderly care experts at Home Care Assistance recommend a few recent novels to add to his or her collection.

Rogue Lawyer

Sebastian Rudd is not your stereotypical street lawyer. He lives in a penthouse and likes the finer things in life, such as small-batch bourbon and golf. He also works out of a van and is willing to defend even the most unsavory clients. John Grisham has created another vivid character who defies convention and is not above bending the rules of ethics in the name of justice. This book’s fast pace will appeal to seniors who appreciate action without excessive violence or foul language. 

The Royal Nanny

This book by Karen Harper is perfect for seniors who are fans of historical fiction or period dramas like Downton AbbeyThe Royal Nanny is based on the true story of Charlotte Bill, who served as a nanny for the royal family of Britain in the late 19th century. The novel blends both fact and fiction into a saga spanning several decades and a wide range of historical events.

Together at the Table: A Novel of Lost Love and Second Helpings

If your loved one is a fan of the Christian fiction genre, he or she should read the latest offering from Hillary Manton Lodge. Juliette D’Alisa returns to the Pacific Northwest to help her mother, whose health is failing. In the months following her return, D’Alisa opens a successful restaurant and develops romantic feelings for two different men. She also discovers a potential family mystery among her grandmother’s letters from World War II Paris that send her on a journey of discovery.

Go Set a Watchman

If your loved one appreciates classic literature, he or she should enjoy Harper Lee’s long-awaited sequel of To Kill a Mockingbird. The book picks up 20 years after the first book ends and features many of the same characters from the original set, now against the backdrop of a time when the South was undergoing tremendous social and political change.
