Overview

With compassion and insight, Caron Chandler Loveless uses humor — lots of it — to inspire and encourage women as they face midlife. Loveless writes with sensitivity about more than estrogen and hot flashes; she confronts self-image questions, the empty-nest syndrome, ailing parents, and the fear of letting go, among other topics, and gives a hopeful outlook to the new world that lies ahead.
