Title: Ya Ya House

Widowed for two years, Annie makes a spontaneous decision to purchase a house eight hundred miles from her adult children. Even though she’s a young senior citizen, her children can’t forgive her for her off the wall decision to move away from her family.
Feeling young at heart, again, Annie moves into her dream house on a cliff overlooking the ocean, in Oregon. Never dreaming her new adventure would make her happy, especially when her Ya Ya Sisters come to visit and make their own decisions in becoming part of the Ya Ya House.
Will Annie’s daughters forgive her for being independent, or will their emotional rebellious attitude go so far as to declare her incompetent? Will Annie have to compromise and leave her sisters to live in her dream home by the ocean?
What about her charming neighbor? Is it possible at this point in her life for a romantic relationship at her age?
