Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Columnist Buchanan (Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body) has a terrific ear and eye for older people. This slim book of short meditations, accompanied by excerpts from the Psalms, is itself a psalter. Like the psalms, the readings give voice to a range of feelings: joy, lament, frustration, loneliness, acceptance, grumpiness. It's said that old age ain't for sissies, and Buchanan's reflections serve to convey an emotional strength developed over a lifetime. The language is direct, simple, and moving, like the language of good poetry. The author won't win big-time recognition-old age ain't sexy, either-but she should win many readers, who will recognize their own words, thoughts, and laments. This lovely volume addresses a growing need for books that explore the spirituality of aging.
