From the Author
This is the book I always felt I needed to write. Although 20 percent of American women reach menopause without having children, we don't talk about it much. Being childless affects so many parts of our lives from the days when our friends are having children--and we're not--to old age when you turn around and no one is there. Throw in stepchildren and the things we do to fill the gap left by our missing children, and I just had to write it down. People who have read it tell me they are glad somebody finally understands what it's like.

I'll be honest - halfway through this book I started scanning through it, wondering what in the heck she could possible have left to say about the subject that was different. Turns out, not much. It basically repeated the same stuff as the first half of the book.
I got kind of annoyed throughout it. Marrying a guy who wasn't a big part of his children's lives wasn't a red flag to her? She couldn't embrace stepmotherhood fully and take advantage of it, including raising a kid through his teens?
It's ok for a few buck download, I guess. But fairly repetitive.
However those that do not have children, and would have liked to have had them, are the targeted audience and Sue does a fantastic job of opening up her heart to you. Also visit her blog "Childless by Marriage".
