  • Wayne, a former guitarist who rediscovers the joy of music
  • Jenny, a mother whose husband is serving in Afghanistan
  • Carol, whose journalistic assignment teaches her more than she expects
  • Shirley, who discovers that some dreams are worth keeping
  • Alex, for whom friendship bridges age differences and soothes a broken heart
  • Gloria, who discovers her blessings and makes peace with her past
  • Alice, who loves to tell jokes, even though her memory is fading
  • Carl, who discovers that reality may hold more promise than long-held fantasy
  • Carolina, a ghost searching for her lost child
  • Tiffany, a teenager with hopes and dreams
  • George, whose life is ebbing, but not his love
  • Sheila, a young woman estranged from her family
  • Carlos, the groundskeeper who has devoted his career to the park

Lakeview Park is a collection of O. Henry-like slice-of-life stories about the people who frequent a fictitious park. These tales reveal folks of all ages, from a small child to the elderly."
