Format: Hardcover
Just when a woman becomes aware that she is aging and a cold chill invades her soul it is time to read "Autumn of a Spring Chicken". This lively, witty, and heart-warming book delights and encourages a woman to face her middle years with a smile and the thought that at last someone really understands. Each message is a joy and each poem touches the heart with a truthful and inspiring message. When the book reaches its end all too soon, one is left with a smile and the thought that growing into the middle years won't be so bad after all!

By A Customer on October 24, 1998
Format: Hardcover
"In a style reminiscent of Erma Bombeck and Judith Viorst" - after reading that review, I was expecting an insightful, humorous account of what it feels like to hit middle age. What a disappointment. The writing is choppy and amateurish...excuse me, I'm having a hot flash.

Just as a hot flash can change our temperature, so the turn of a page can move us from tears to laughter. Ms. Thoele tells it all, from who we are now in mid-life to who we were in the sixties. Her poems are rarely more than a page or two, but they pack a wallop. She talks of child-rearing and empty nexts and illness of a spouse and the "pecularity and perks of aging" and we who are at this stage in life, know of what she speaks. Her midlife motto "I've decided not to worry about that" should be hung on every refrigerator door or pasted on every magnifying mirror. As one reads her poems, one nods in recognition. She not only affirms what we feel and endure, she validates it. She gives us the right to change and to feel better on the inside even though we don't look better on the outside. Her book makes the aging process humorous and acceptable.
