Where do we find the relationships that matter in our second adulthood? Susanne Braun Levine, author of Inventing the Rest of Our Lives, anwers these questions with charming wit, experience, and intrigue in How We Love Now, with a new introduction by the author. 

Today, women in their fifties, sixties, and seventies are defining a totally new love narrative. Whether they are already experiencing intimacy—and great sex!—or longing to, these women are discovering unparalleled freedom and joy. Continuing Suzanne Braun Levine’s ongoing conversation with women in Second Adulthood, How We Love Now draws on her interviews with women across the country. Some are finding new relationships—with younger men, other women, or rediscovered childhood sweethearts—while others are enriching longstanding ones. (Of course, the Internet has opened up a new world of opportunities.) Their funny, heart-wrenching, and inspiring stories prove that this pioneering generation of women is continuing to take risks—and enjoying life more than ever.
