Ronnie Ray Jenkins edited the summary of The Flowers of Reminiscence Wednesday, April 27, 2011.
There's magic in that old journal setting in the dusty box in the corner of her room. If she can't escape Beacon Manor Nursing Home physically, well, just maybe she can escape it mentally. After all it's her mind playing tricks on her. She hates this place, and will do whatever it takes to escape including using the sleeping pills she has hidden in the flaps of the journal's covers. The nurses pay little attention whether she has taken the pills anyway.
Something changes on her first visit to the journal though. She begins to remember. It's a slow process, but a necessary process. She even begins to accept those around her, not as mere patients too, but real human beings.
Then the letter arrives. A letter that can set her free.
