Aging and Broke
By: Emmett E. Kennedy
About the Book
Joe stepped away from his greedy wife a few years ago, leaving behind an unhappy marriage and plenty of money. After drifting here and there as he reaches his fifties, he finds himself in Iowa working as a construction laborer, living in a small apartment, and barely making ends meet.
Joe becomes a regular in a neighborhood diner where he met the pretty waitress, Kathy, and her equally pretty sister, Myra. Joe doesn’t know that connecting with Myra will put him in danger. But Myra’s ex-husband is obsessive, powerful, and relentless. Joe is beaten, left for dead, shot, and hospitalized, but with all that, he begins to realize true love and contentment.
