Flight Risk by Meg Braem

99-year-old World War II veteran, Hank Dunfield is found wandering aimlessly through a field in the early hours of the morning, five kilometers away from his residence at Ponderosa Pine Lodge. Six weeks away from his 100th birthday, the lodge recruits Sarah, a nursing student, to help keep Hank safe, comfortable and in the building while they plan a grand centenarian celebration. There’s one problem…Hank doesn’t want to live that long.
