Prime of Life by P.D. Bekendam

Overview:

Ben used to be a cardiothoracic surgeon before he suddenly abandoned his career and became a janitor at a retirement facility. Now, other than dealing with minor problems such as an unhealthy obsession with prime numbers, an inept boss, and a feud between two cantankerous retirees, he lives a relatively stress-free life. There is even hope for romance when an attractive podiatrist shows an interest in him.

But it is not long before his past catches up with him and his carefully protected world begins to unravel. He is forced to face deep issues about life, love, and God head-on, rather than hide behind his cleaning cart.

My Review:
I was able to knock out this book within three hours!  I found the book to be a very quick read.
The author introduces you to Ben, who is a former Cardiothoracic surgeon, now turned janitor at a retirement community. Ben was on a journey to find a simpler plan for his life.   He was able to keep his former life under wraps until a resident was able to uncover his past career.
As you read through the book, you are introduced to several other characters in the book.  The author does a terrific job describing each character and you can easily picture each one of them, including the cantankerous Frank.   
More of Ben's past comes out when a new resident has a picture of her niece on her refrigerator....
The ending is truly endearing as his life comes full circle and he realizes that God really does care for all of us.
Thankfully he was able to realize it before it was too late.
Thank you to Worthy Publishing First Look Book Tour for allowing me to review this book.
