Frangipani House (Gilroy) is about an old woman by the name of Mama King, who is as tough as nails. She begins to be forgetful and since no one can care for her (her family all live in American and she's in Guyana) they have to send her to a rest home. This rest home is called Frangipani House. It is a nightmarish place and it doesn't take long before the only way she can survive is to escape into a deep well of memories of her life. The first ten chapters are about her having to go to the Frangipani House and the people she meets once there, and how they begin to sedate her, mistreat her physically, and speak harshly to her. Chapter 8-10 is her retreat into her memories.
