A Must Read for any Senior. What a surprise. Who could be happy when divorced after 56 years? And yet, the author, Brenda Frank, has found her path from sadness to joy. This is an intelligent, witty and very insightful book. I laughed and I nearly cried. This book isn't just for the divorced either. It should be a must read for anyone who is (as I am) a "senior" and now retired...looking towards the latter part of my life with some trepidation....
