About this title


Welcome to Good Shepherd, an assisted living facility in any Minnesota small town. Good Shepherd has twelve living units and twelve residents; the book has twelve stories. As Pearl, the chatty newsmonger of the Center, says, “We came here to spend the end of our lives. And suddenly, it’s the beginning.” You’ll meet Hazel, acid-tongued critic, until her soft side is revealed by an eleven year-old girl; Elaine, who lives in her husband’s shadow until she eclipses him in literary fame; Adam, prisoner of his wife’s demeanor until she dies, leaving him convoluted, confused, and unprepared to cope; angry veteran Wayne, testy Stella, Princess Grace, all who appear in hallways in each other’s stories and celebrate together in the finale “Sweet Spot.” Lumberjack Arnold says “We’re all suckers for a happy ending.” Is there such a thing? Read it.

About the Author:

In 2000, Jerry Mevissen emigrated from the Twin Cities and retired to Minnesota's North Country. For three years, he wrote a column for the Sebeka Menahga Review Messenger called Nimrod Chronicles. Selections from that column resulted in a book of the same name, published by North Star Press in 2005. He followed that with a collection of short stories, Broken Hart, published by the Jackpine Writers Bloc in 2008. He is a member of the Jackpine Writers Bloc in Park Rapids and continues his association with the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. Jerry hobby farms on the Crow Wing River where he tends Scottish Highland cattle, Haflinger horses, and his faithful pup Princess Sophia.
