Widowed, introspective, attractive and witty, Susannah Emory's problem is that she can't be content with an easy life. Living in Seattle at the upper end of middle age, she asks, "Now what?"   
 
She loves to dance, she rows crew, she's a serious meditator - but there's a blank space in her life she'd like to fill with a relationship.   Filling that space will require dealing with modern dating and sexual mores, ageism, and her own insecurities. 
 
Maybe it will be Peter, a jack-of-all trades who lives on a sailboat.  Maybe it will be Marty, a cardiologist who loves art and music.  Maybe it will be Will, a former priest who's a popular professor at the University.
 
To paraphrase Bette Davis, "Aging is not for sissies."  This is a novel about love in later life, about how difficult it is to overcome old ways of thinking and being and to live life more fully.  And also about the rare satisfaction of learning that one has wisdom to share, and that others are helped by having it.

Review:

Readers in the Pacific Northwest should enjoy the familiar landmarks in this chronicle of a widow's journey to old age as she takes risks to find love and discovers the treasures of family.  Jean Davies Okimoto -author of The Reinvention of Albert Paugh

Finished your book. Brought smiles and tears. I did enjoy it and your wonderful descriptions. Great job! Dennis
