This is the sort of book that could only be narrated by the author - it is too personal for anything else. She narrates beautifully. The contents are also beautiful, honest and uplifting. Her story is one that many of us relate to - children leave and along with them goes our sense of purpose and even sense of self. This book goes some way to providing answers, or at least questions, to help each of us start out on the journey to find our new self. Although it’s very American mom in places, i think empty nest and next phases of life are pretty universal.
