Ninety-Nine. Straight Up, No Chaser
By Ilona Royce Smithkin

What is it like, waiting for your last breath on earth?

In this raw and heart-moving book, Ilona Royce Smithkin shares a year of her journal writing. Her thoughts on living by the sea, connecting with nature, the cycles of seasons and the tides, are meditations on life. Her rationalization and deal-making with her body at ninety-nine years old are brave and inspiring.

Contemplative, funny and honest, Ilona offers a no-filter perspective on the final canvas of her life.
