About the Book: Girls' Guide to Aging with Grit and Gusto: A Memoir and Six Interviews
What 's a girl to do if she's dumped by her husband in her sixties? How about writing a book documenting her journey and collecting role-models of inspirational women from their sixties through their nineties? 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 road map for women who want to thrive (whatever their age or circumstances) as they grow older.
