5.0 out of 5 stars A Celebration of Triumph over Tragedy, April 12, 2009
From the moment I read the first page, I was hooked. Peggy Kennedy's beautifully written memoir is the story of her remarkable family and how she carved out a successful life for herself despite the challenges she faced growing up.

Like that other Kennedy family, Peggy's was marked by being blessed with great talent and promise as well as by suffering more than their share of heart-breaking misfortune. Creativity was king in the Kennedy household and each of the children was gifted with special abilities. However, their mother's mental illness was the underlying shadow that colored much of their early years and the secret that bonded the family in silence.

"Approaching Neverland" is a mesmerizing read from the moment you pick it up until the final page. Anyone who has ever faced significant loss or overcome great challenge will especially relate. Peggy's story is both a deeply moving account of a complex family and a celebration of triumph and overcoming the odds. A must read that will leave you smiling with tears in your eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure Trove of Marital Gems!, April 12, 2009
Any woman worth her salt, will relate to the clever tongue-in-cheek recipes found in "Secret Recipes for the Modern Wife." Each delivers dozens of oh-so-tangy morsels of insight into the role of women now and then. The irony is served up with a punch of humor and a dash of sass--just the right amount of spice to keep your mouth watering for more.

In her latest book, Nava Atlas has departed from her vegetarian ways and created a meaty, laugh-out-loud look at marriage with some very "special sauce" on the side. It belongs on every woman's bookshelf. In fact, keep it in the kitchen; the humor and sass will keep you cookin' for years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Grays--A "colorful" look at aging with gusto, January 22, 2009
Amazing Grays is GREAT!! I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed Maggie's writing style: fascinating facts, inspiring quotes, solid material, and written in an engaging manner that grabs and keeps your interest throughout. If you're a woman over fifty, you won't want to put this down. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy--it's got everything!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Joyous Celebration, August 24, 2007
Yes, we may turn red and drip with sweat at any moment, we may burst through more than one zipper in our closet, and we might even momentarily blank on the names of those nearest and dearest, but we menopausal gals have one super ace in the hole. That is our ability to put life into perspective, laugh at our foibles, and enjoy ourselves. This book does exactly that. It is a joyous celebration of the ups and downs of menopause written by women (and a couple of men) who've racked up a few years and shared their experiences on the lighter side of aging. Full of humor, insight, and wisdom, the book is one you can't put down. As a contributor and a woman of "a certain age," I loved each and every story. Kudos to my meno-sisters!
