About the Book

Middlehood women—from forty to sixty-five—are in a rich and challenging time of life, full of contradictory feelings brought on by our growing strengths and the waning of familiar ways of life. It often feels like a mountain climb, full of glorious vistas, sudden storms, and winding trails. Women and Middlehood: Halfway Up the Mountain is an exploration and celebration of how women journey through this unique time of our lives. It draws upon one of the most powerful methods that women often use for negotiating change in our lives: we talk to other women. Each of us has a wealth of experience, and when that is joined with the experiences of other women, we create a veritable well of wisdom for ourselves and others. In that spirit, many women contributed stories, experiences and insights to this book.
