Frances Weaver's bestselling book The Girls with the Grandmother Faces (available from Hyperion) won her a coast-to-coast reputation as the Erma Bombeck of the sandwich generation, teaching us we are never too old or out of practice to grab hold of life's pleasures. Now in paperback, I'm Not As Old As I Used to Be boldly tackles issues from coping with widowhood to graciously making peace with life's inevitable changes.
Fans across the country can testify to the power of Weaver's signature warmth and wisdom on what life can offer in the second half. Weaver candidly shares the intimate details of her own journey toward emotional wholeness after the death of her husband -- including her bout with alcoholism and courageous recovery. Speaking directly from her heart to friends and fans, her courage becomes our encouragement.
Those who already know and love her will want I'm Not As Old As I Used to Be for more of Weaver's irreplaceable musings, stories, and commonsense wisdom. And as more and more Boomers begin to engage the questions of growing older, they will find in this book an upbeat manual of priceless advice and inspiration.
