Robin Lee lives next door to her mother in the family’s childhood home. When her mother needed help paying the bills, Robin took early retirement from University of Miami and converted the home to a reverse mortgage to pay her mother’s living expenses. What she didn’t realize were the risks involved in reverse mortgages, and, something she could never have predicted, the economic downturn of 2007. Now both homes are in danger of foreclosure, and Robin, her adult children and siblings are doing everything in their power to keep them.
