Turning thirty is a milestone: people tease you that your youth is over, it's time to settle down and prepare for middle age. Today, when women are often single and childless at 30, there can be real fear beneath the joking. Two women in their thirties decided to explore these feelings. They have interviewed many of their peers, as well as older women. Along with these wry and enlightening interviews, they share a wealth of research into a fascinating period of transition.
