In this sophisticated look at how women approach life and love in their middle years, the author uses the stories of 25 women to illustrate the courageous choices women make, often against cultural expectations. Teri Schnaubelt delivers these stories with unfussy clarity. The audiobook's heavy subject matter--the making of choices that respect a woman's deepest drives as well as the people she cares about--would be challenging for any narrator, so it shouldn't be a surprise that even a gifted narrator like Schnaubelt misses some of its rich undercurrents. But her relaxed tone and command of phrasing, nevertheless, make this easy to hear and absorb. The writing and performance celebrate the choices made by these women and push back on lingering expectations that they be passive and deferential.
