Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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. Filled with humor and quirky characters, Prime of Life delivers a satisfying and entertaining read.

Author/Artist Review

Author: P. D. Bekendam
Submitted: August 29, 2014

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a practicing ophthalmologist (eye surgeon), but I also enjoy writing and blogging when I'm not playing legos with my boys or lost in a book.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wrote Prime of Life when I was in the midst of my residency training. I was working 60 or 70 hours a week in the hospital when late one night I happened across a custodian mopping the floor. I wondered what it would be like if a doctor suddenly quit medicine and started cleaning for a living. The next day I started writing Prime of Life.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will get lost in the story and be entertained. I hope the story will reveal or underscore some deeper truths about life and God.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  This work is special to me because it is my debut novel.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Proceeds from my writing go to help fund my efforts to bring sight-restoring cataract surgery to the needlessly blind in developing countries.
