This one line that Sam Dawson wrote in Broad Appeal inspired me. Being 44 years old and seeing myself staring at the second half of life, I was looking for some wisdom and humor -boy, did I find it in this little book!
It will make you laugh out loud and let you inside Sam --and all the writers-- knowledge base. They open up about sensitive subjects - marriage, divorce, money, sex, God, work, physical changes, etc. with candor and grace. What I love about this book is that no matter what age you are, you will enjoy the read.
I'm giving a copy this Christmas to all my women friends and family!
Broad Appeal gives you access to connect with a community of wonderful, wise women who live life on their own terms. No matter where I open the book I am inspired.
No matter what topic catches your attention at the moment, money sex or sagging skin, you will admire them and laugh with them.
Each woman is quotable in her own way. I have too many favorites to quote them all. "My days belong to me." "The decision to weep or laugh, to enjoy life or whine about it is mine." "Time it seems mellows men and toughens women." "I stand up for what is best for me." "Live life to the fullest. I woke up married and that night I was a widow." "Outside I am aging but inside I am flying." "Since I have actively sought out happy people, my life has improved dramatically." See, too many good quotes to choose, each with a story behind them.
Sam didn't set out to interview happy, resilient women but that is what she found. These women don't deny the hard knocks but find what is great about their ages and stages, and most of all themselves. Look forward with them. I bought copies for all my sisters and friends at Christmas.I am looking giving copies to my young nieces next.

I found it rather tedious and repetitive. It belied my high expectations based on reviews and the hype about it.Published on May 18, 2013 by Ramana Rajgopaul
wonderful! Insightful, heartwarming, and humorous. Women will be able to identify with these women and the men in their lives could really learn something.Published on January 10, 2013 by jenny bradbury
