As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod. At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take pleasure in her surroundings and call on resources she didn’t realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an “unfinished woman” was full of possibilities.
Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers. This year of self-discovery brought about extraordinary changes in the author’s life. The steps that Joan took to revitalize herself and rediscover her potential have helped thousands of woman reveal and release untapped resources within themselves.

Free too be a woman of my own making.
I long to be brave enough to take chances. This book gives me the courage to return to my days of youthful adventure and overcome the fear that has come about from life's mistakes. I feel free to be a woman of my own making and help my wonderful husband of 40 years find retirement an adventure, too.

Lovely story of strength and independence!
Honestly this book took me over a year to open after rave reviews from a dear friend. I wrote my own story in my head of a woman escaping for a year at the expense of her husband, to find herself. That was so far from the truth and I was pleasantly surprised!
A beautifully written journey of self expression and discovery partnered with a determination to be independent. I love how she releases her pride to experience a greater depth.
My favorite part was the end when you find she is not the only one on a journey to self discovery. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone. Hopefully, a few young couples will read this and save themselves years of anguish before feeling at home alone and together.
