Frangipani House is the story of Mama King, trapped by age and infirmity, but indomitable. She escapes from her rest home into the dangerous world of the poor.
Frangipani House is a beautifully written protest at institutions that isolate, and a way of life that denies respect and responsibility for the weak.
