Narrator Suzanne Toren's mature pitch and thoughtful phrasing are perfect for this memoir-like review of the various ways women transition into their later years. Her sensitive interpretation of this nuanced writing will make many listeners feel like they are being invited into the author's life as they hear her intelligent observations and advice. The 71-year-old psychology professor and therapist, who has been studying women her entire career, shares the aging stories of her female friends and clients. They report feeling invisible to younger people, marginalized in the public arena, and unsettled at the disconnect between their vigor and the protective reactions of others. Toren's touching performance is especially effective in capturing Mary Pipher's melancholy optimism, especially when reading candid stories from the author's own experiences. T.W.
