Many of today's women find themselves entering the last third of their lives with a newfound sense of personal freedom and optimism. Having spent most of their lives as pacesetters, these women, now in their sixties and beyond, are beginning to ask, ''What now?'' Based on extensive interviews, research, and the authors' personal experiences, this book explores the multitude of opportunities available in one's ''third third'' of life and addresses common concerns of older women, such as work, finances, health, and relationships. The authors also speak to the baby boomers and offer a perspective on the future. Comprehensive and engaging, A Time of Our Own is a must-read for all women entering this exciting new chapter of life.
