Book Description

“Friday at approximately 1:14 pm Eastern Standard Time I decided that covering the gray in my hair was priority. To set the facts straight I started dying my hair at age 39 and not one day sooner. One day I looked in the mirror and saw that my natural blonde hair was no longer sultry. Instead of a Dietrich look, I was assuming a dead on impression of Bette Davis in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane". “Six months ago I wrote about the subject of chin hairs because getting rid of them has now become an important daily ritual for me. Things have not gotten any better these past few months and I have become so obsessed with unneeded body hair that I should be committed.” These are excerpts from my book called “Menopausal Woman From the Corn.” If you need a good chuckle there is something for everyone in this book. Stories your mother was afraid to tell you or she did - and we just forgot!

About the Author

Linda Seccaspina was born in the small rural town of Cowansville, Quebec. Defying her late father's wishes that she join the Canadian army, Linda left town by the seat of her pants and became a fashion designer. After realizing her designs scared most manufacturers, she opened her own store called Flash Cadilac in Ottawa in 1974 and created general retail havoc on Rideau Street until 1997. Seccaspina's second store, Savannah Devilles, will always remain as a light in her heart because of those young customers who let her know that she was making a difference in their lives. Linda has two sons, two daughters in law, and two of the cutest canine grandbabies you ever did see. She blogs on Zoomers Canada and worshiped Nora Ephron.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Menopausal Women" A Delightful Read June 3, 2012
By M.A.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Menopausal Women of the Corn" is a delightful look into the mind and life of the interesting, warm-hearted and successful Linda Seccaspina. Musing on pop culture, reflecting on death and loss, and chatting about the little everyday things that connect us all, Ms. Seccaspina is able to write about anything with smarts and sass. This is an entertaining read that also I felt to be uplifting. When I finished this book, I thought, "Man, life is hard and weird and full....what an adventure." Let the adventure continue!

5.0 out of 5 stars May I Just Say? June 1, 2012
Format:Paperback
I just finished reading Linda Seccaspina's book,"Menopausal Women Of The Corn," and found it be as delightful as the author. Linda writes from her beautiful heart, something we have all known for a long time. It is funny, introspective and at times soulful enough to bring you to tears.
I'm so glad I read this book. I was able to learn a little bit more about my friend, my soul sister and kindred spirit.
Thank you Linda, for all your cyber hugs. We couldn't live without them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful look at life - even the hard parts June 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Reading her delightfully titled "Menopausal Woman from the Corn", you learn that, in addition to being a popular blogger on Zoomers.com and Open Salon, Linda Seccaspina is above all a woman who has lived a pretty extraordinary life. From childhood brushes with fame, to her mother's tragic death, to leaving difficult high school years behind to enter the world of fashion, to running a shop full of customers as eccentric as she is, to countless odd encounters (including some with erstwhile teen idols), Linda is one of those people who seems to have done it all. While a life like hers might make some distant or snobby, it seems to have had the opposite effect on Linda: This is a woman who will talk to, and laugh with, anyone -- right down to Amish women who are deliberately trying to avoid her.

The wonderful thing about Seccaspina's writing is that she can tackle any subject, and it will be instantly relatable. Her kindness, warmth, and wacky sense of humor shine through everything. It's telling that in this book, a collection of some of her best writing, each essay finishes with a comment from a friend or reader; with her love of life and of all of us living it together, I don't believe Linda would want to tell her stories all alone. Instead, she takes us along with her to experience laughable incidents, inspiring moments, memories happy and sad. She shares recipes and brutally honest (and hilarious) reflections on what it is to be a menopausal woman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Menopausal Woman May 17, 2013
Format:Paperback
I have followed Linda's blogs on Open Salon and Zoomers for several years now. This book presents a deeper view of the woman behind the blogs. Her writing is fun and yet touches the heart of her readers. In fact, I have shared many of her blogs with both my facebook and twitter friends who love them as well. Whenever I read her work I learn something about what it is like to be a person who has risen above a difficult youth, suffered many of the same kinds of life experiences I have and is fearless in writing about it. I love this book and would recommend it to anyone (not just menopausal women).

5.0 out of 5 stars A fellow menopausal women April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this book 5 star because it was very entertaining. I laughed so hard that I almost wet my pants. Also I could personally relate to most of the chapters.

I would recommend this book to any women over the age of 40. Now I need to search for more books by Linda to purchase on my Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Menopausal Woman From the Corn February 7, 2013
By Trini
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book months ago, but knowing the author's work I waited (it wasn't easy)until I could read it at my leisure and I'm glad I did.
Don't be misled by the title...there's something for everyone...you'll laugh, you'll cry, and be inspired. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Menopausal Woman from the Corn June 30, 2012
Format:Paperback
Beginning with a stunning cover designed by Diana Ani Stokely of grafixtogo.com, romping through the written words of Linda Seccaspina is pure joy. It is the kind of book which gives you a look inside of someone's life, feelings, situations, experiences and joie de vivre. It is an opportunity to know a life and how it teaches on many levels and makes the whole person. Linda expresses so much in these pages that you feel like you know her personally. In all our lives we need a Linda, the person who says so much and in such a fun and meaningful way. This book is a great gift for a friend's birthday, one of those "over the hill" events which seem to start earlier every year...I stopped counting. It is also a nostalgic read as through its pages you see the earmarks of her youth, what we all might have experienced in the pop culture of the 60's and beyond. I think there will much more from Linda Seccaspina in the future, we are just going to have to wait! Where does the line form?
