What's a girl to do if she's dumped by her husband in her 60's?
How about writing a book documenting her journey and collecting role-models of inspirational women from their 60's through their 90's?
The humorous yet educational memoir of a therapist's journey and the experiences of her inspiring interviewees, women who've been through grief, depression, caregiving, widowhood, retirement, empty-nesting, and physical challenges, Girls' Guide to Aging with Grit and Gusto is a roadmap for women who want to thrive (whatever their age or circumstances) as they grow older.
