Prime of Life By P.D. Bekendam GIVEAWAY!

Is a simple life too much to ask for?
Ben thinks the retirement home where he works should be called “Heaven Can Wait a Little Longer While I Golf” instead of Heritage Gardens. But who asked him? He’s just the janitor, after all. Of course, his inept boss, the cantankerous residents, and even his attractive podiatrist friend don’t know one important thing about him: he was recently a cardiothoracic surgeon, not a broom-pushing custodian.
Ben is in search of a stress-free life with a little freedom from the past thrown in. But will it be that simple to escape who he used to be—and all he used to fear?

An inspiring, quirky story from an award-winning author, Prime of Life reminds us that new life can find us in the most unexpected places.

I was very disappointed with this book.
I thought about Rain man when I was reading it. Ben the main character was fascinated with Prime numbers. Which became way to much for me. That is all he talked about.
It is a Christian book which you all know by now is all I read and review, so I do not want to read books with curse words in them and this one has some.
The story was just to boring for me. The attention to detail was no where to be found in the book.
I am so sad to say that this is not a book that I recommend at all.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.


  1. Mary, thanks for the honest review. I won't be reading this one


  2. I'll pass on reading this one too! I have too many books to read to waste my time on this one. Thanks for your honest opinion Mary!

  5. Thanks for your honest review, Mary. It's on my TBR schedule also, and I'm not sure I want to read it after seeing your review. I have other priorities in that stack of books, so it won't be moving to the top of the stack. Thanks!

  6. Thanks Mary reading your review I was thinking the same thing .Great minds think a lot . Blessings ,DanaGirl

  7. I like the title of this book and I am rather interested in a story where the character makes a career change to simplify his life and reduce stress. It does concern me that you didn't seem to care for this book so my feelings on reading it are mixed. I will put it this way, if I received it in the mail, I would read it but I wouldn't buy this one like I do so many. Thank you Mary for your honest reviews.
