The Retirement Blues: A Coming-Of-Age Story For Seniors

The term “mid-life crisis” is common. Identity transitions can occur at any age, though: adolescence, middle age, and later in life.

Retirement is usually seen as a cause for celebration, but the major transition can also create feelings of depression.

Jennifer J. Chow, author of the new book The 228 Legacy, was inspired to write a novel based on her geriatric social work experience. “I wanted people to understand some hidden issues of aging. I deliberately told the story using multigenerational viewpoints to highlight issues from different perspectives.”

The book covers various aspects of aging and features a senior home in its setting. However, The 228 Legacy is also a novel about cultural identity and long-standing secrets. In fact, it’s inspired by a true historical event that happened in Taiwan.

Jane Porter, national bestselling author of The Good Daughter, describes the book as, “An impressive debut! Moving, hopeful, and triumphant. A compelling read."

In The 228 Legacy, three generations in an all-female Taiwanese family living near Los Angeles in 1980 are each guarding personal secrets. Grandmother Silk finds out that she has breast cancer, as daughter Lisa loses her job, while pre-teen granddaughter Abbey struggles with a school bully. When Silk’s mysterious past comes out—revealing a shocking historical event that left her widowed—the truth forces the family to reconnect emotionally and battle their problems together.

An enlightening story about growing older, The 228 Legacy explores:

• Ageism- how society perceives and dismisses elders

• Identity transition- the way retirement can cause the blues

• Spousal loss- how the death of a husband or wife can deeply affect us

• Deteriorating health- how changes in our bodies alter our perception of ourselves

• Caregiver burden- the stress of caring for others, particularly those in the sandwich generation

Jennifer J. Chow is a graduate of Cornell University with a BS in Biology & Society and an undergraduate specialization in gerontology, along with a Master’s in Social Welfare with a concentration in aging. She is a licensed clinical social worker and worked in the field for several years. Her short stories have been published in several literary magazines. Additionally, The 228 Legacy made it to the second round of the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
