This is a perfect vacation read for us over-50s. It's definitely a woman's book that can have some appeal to women of all ages, but those of us who emerged from girlhood in the 60s and 70s can particularly appreciate her musings on life: liking oneself, wanting to change, changing, and finally ending up really liking oneself again. I listened to the audio version of this, read by the author, and was instantly transported back to my mid-Atlantic East Coast, catholic school upbringing.
Yes, it may have rambled on, yes it may have said in 200 words what she might have said in 150, but that's how I often think and talk too. When you get to our age, you're entitled to ramble and repeat. It's relaxing, uplifting, re-affirming. Just the thing to start off on a trip back to girlhood summers with the family. It would also make a wonderful gift for a BFF today.
