"From its colorful cover chock-full of butterflies to its long, varied list of interviews, essays, profiles of and Q&As from women finding themselves, reinventing themselves, and following their dreams and living their fullest lives in their later years, this delightful primer of motivation should find its way on every woman's shelf." --Kirkus Reviews

The book features interviews, profiles and essays from great women past and present--Vera Wang, Cheryl Strayed and Julia Child, among others--who exemplify living large at every age." --Family Circle

A Glorious Freedom captures the spirit of what it means to show up, be seen, and be free." --Brené Brown, Ph.D., author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Rising Strong
