These elements are masterfully woven into a single story line that invites readers to rethink societal attitudes and messages about older women. A favourite gift book, a popular reading group choice, and a perennial best-seller with over 1.5 million copies sold, the book celebrates the message of ageing as a natural gift of life.

Reviews

Plainly I am not going to be able to disown her now, for in her bold and generous way she has pushed me into some extraordinary adventures and chances, and for that I am duty-bound to be grateful to her. -- Ms. Joseph, from the Foreword An important, moving and life-affirming book. . . . The various words speak about dignity, about respect and about caring. About saying goodbye to old friends and hello to new ones. . . . about not growing old gracefully, if that's what suits you. -- Reading for Pleasure
