Description 1 online resource
Summary This title focuses on the lives of a group of women from the UK who moved to the Costa Blanca in Spain in retirement. We follow their journeys as they seek 'community' and belonging in a world characterised by rapid social change. Imbued with nostalgic yearning, community is hailed as a panacea to the ills of modernity and as a representation of social continuity
