"Growing older is more expansive than the world would have us believe," says Houston attorney, author, and Trinidad native Karen Walrond in this refreshing audiobook about reclaiming your life. In a clear timbre and lower register, she delivers inspiring stories about aging with the timing and resonance of an assured voice pro. Much of the narrative is about stereotypes of old people that are held by a range of people: her African-American ancestors (valued, revered), American culture (dim-witted, unproductive, burdensome), and herself (irrelevant, disempowered, sexless). With her magnetic delivery, Walrond offers refreshing perspectives and mental tools for growing old that have enormous power. Her journey to becoming more proactive about aging is offered with such wonder and vulnerability that her suggestions will be impossible to ignore. T.W.
