Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Second Story Woman Carole Calladine takes the reader along on her journey of self-discovery. Her authentic voice comes through as she comes to terms with the balance between her professional responsibilities and her need for a creative life. This strong memoir will speak to anyone charting life past 50."

- Doris Larson, travel writer, founder of "A Writing Retreat:

In the Company of Women"

"Wear a hard hat and prepare for black ice because memoir is harsh country. In Second Story Woman, Carole Calladine stirs the pot where we prick a finger and the spell of our youth disappears. She makes us see we are both witch and princess. The apple that we bite and hold and share is our life. She tells us any time we have is enough time to be brave."

- Jeanne Bryner, author of Eclipse (stories) & Blind Horse (poems)

"Carole Calladine is a quintessential storyteller whose writing is entertaining, informative, and inspiring. Second Story Woman is a feast for the soul, a guide to mindfulness, and a tale of tender triumph over a huge life challenge." - Jan Phillips, author of The Art of Original Thinking-The Making of a Thought Leader

This reflective book about the author's journey coming to terms with diabetes was interesting and funny! I looked forward to reading it at the close of each day, as it was relaxing and full of rich, sensory detail. I very much related to the exploration of a distant city on your own; it's one of the best things to do as you find places that are off the beaten trail and have a more personal experience. Anyone who enjoys photography and nature will also find much to like here.

This deeply honest memoir is not only about second chances in the second half of life, or about facing and managing diabetes. It is also about the nature of creativity itself and living a creative life. Through the vivid descriptions of nature through the changing seasons, the reader accompanies the author on her neighborhood bicycle rides. Our spirit is refreshed and renewed along with hers in awe and wonder at the opportunities for second chances when we allow ourselves to be open to them. I couldn't put it down!

A very readable memoir of challenges faced with courage and willingness to change lifestyle behavior. A gift for anyone coping with middle age and wanting to embrace "second chances" and choices! Upbeat!

Great read and very insightful and believable--would be a joy to know this woman personally as she appears to be most real.
