This was a beautiful book -- full of compassion, humor, wisdom and a huge dose of imagination. Elaine Winer, who wrote it, I believe, in her 70's describes the life of her female protagonist, Ellen, who is likely about the same age as the author. Ellen finds herself on a wild ride, beginning with the grief and fog that follow her husband's demise and gradually moving towards the stage of coming into her own power. As a woman in my mid-60's, I could definitely relate to many of Ellen's struggles and issues, including the onset of maturity along with its pros and cons. This book is engaging, funny, empathic and uplifting. I did not want to put it down until I finished it! I highly recommend it!
