Bestselling author of 20 books and celebrated thought leader Carol Orsborn captures the issues and emotions facing Boomer women today. The women of the Boomer generation redefined midlife, and now Orsborn sets her sights on redefining what it means to age, breaking down the stereotypes of growing old. Voiced by one of their own, Fierce with Age relates the ups and downs of this generation at a crossroads, experienced through Carol's tumultuous year of transformation into the "wild space beyond midlife."
Drawing from excerpts in her personal diary, this definitive memoir for Boomers marries easily identifiable stories with a popular blend of spirituality and self-help, building a bridge between this distinctive generation's past and future, and providing a focal point for the Boomer generation's next life stage and revolution. Alongside her dog, Lucky, and supported by a colorful cast of characters, Carol searches for God and squirrels in Brooklyn.
