In her newest look at human passages, bestselling social chronicler Gail Sheehy turns her attention to sex, love, and dating in women over 50. Narrator Kate Reading lends her distinguished voice to Sheehy's exploration of the misconceptions, medical findings, and universal patterns defining the seasoned woman. Reading narrates with bright intelligence. Although there are few opportunities for character interpretation, she manages to bring vitality to the stories revealed through anecdotes and interviews with some 200 women, and adds a solemnity to Sheehy's generalizations based on this limited evidence. There's nothing revelatory here, but for those who feel an active sex life is over for them, Sheehy's book offers some interesting options.
