Synopsis: The Death called Change is an extraordinary story of the decisions people make to triumph over the inevitable. In the mid-eighties, the retirement housing industry underwent a massive and sudden change. This is the story of three people who, each for their own reasons, needed to see Freden Home survive but felt helpless before the onslaught of powerful intruders into their idyllic existence. Wendell Stern, admissions counselor at Freden Home, finds himself in the position of trying to convince older people to give up their homes to move into Freden even though he is convinced that Freden will not survive. This is an evocative portrait of a man caught by forces he cannot control. How much of his personal integrity is he willing to give up to save this home for the residents who trust him and for the woman he loves? R. Z. Halleson gives us a profound look into an industry that few people know anything about. This amazing first novel is right-on in its portrayal of elderly people who see death happening all around them but who live as if today is all that counts. The Death called Change is compassionate and utterly convincing.
