Peter Ferry writes with an easy style in his latest novel, Old Heart. The balance of complex themes - a failed marriage, a child with Down syndrome, lost love, and complex family dynamics - is thought-provoking yet accessible. The book is charming and not depressing, uplifting with an authentic portrayal of an octogenarian runaway in search of a long-lost love. While Old Heart can be enjoyed by all generations, it has insight into our aging population's psyche that rings true.
