"Reading this book is like talking to a really good friend who is prepared to hear your midnight confessions and then share a few of her own. Getting older is no picnic, but reading this book offers the immeasurable comfort of knowing we are not alone in the journey and that as much as there are moments to weep, there are also lots of moments when laughter is the only sane response." --Pearl Cleage, author of Seen It All and Done the Rest
"Honest, heartfelt voices." --Publishers Weekly
