From the Publisher
"The author provides and excellent review of the tasks and opportunities inherent in the middle years of a woman's life. She uses an elegant theoretical model to describe the process of change at this stage and richly illustrates it with numerous clinical vignettes and marvelous literary references, chosen with particular aptness that makes them linger in the reader's consciousness. . . . Written in a user-friendly manner, the book is not only a valuable resource in terms of providing information and validation to midlife women, but is also a useful tool for those male clinicians still pondering what a woman wants. Finally, it is well indexed and has a comprehensive, diverse, interesting bibliography that encourages rather than overwhelms."
Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
"Dr. Edelstein, in her excellent book . . . describes midlife as a complex internal process for women dealing with claiming their own creativity and letting go of impediments. . . . I recommend this book . . . as it voices poetically and accurately complex tapestries of midlife growth and change."
