About the Author

Teri Emory is living proof that majoring in French as an undergraduate and studying psycholinguistics in graduate school do not necessarily lead to rack and ruin. To wit: She has taught writing and literature at the University of North Florida, Hunter College, Yeshiva University, and Fordham University and is a grateful survivor of a fifteen-year tour of duty as a corporate writer. Her essays, articles, and poems have appeared in consumer, online, and academic publications, and she has edited essays and book-length manuscripts on absurdly esoteric topics.

She grew up in and around New York City and has lived and worked in Berkeley, Jacksonville, Philadelphia, Manhattan, and Rome (Italy). A devoted mother and besotted grandmother, she now resides in Las Vegas, married to a man whom she re-met, after almost forty years, at a high school reunion.

Despite taking very different paths after college, the women in Second Acts remained the best of friends and knew everything about each other....they had such a deep bond. Emory mastered telling each of their stories in the present as well as delving into their past. The main characters are so well developed and I love seeing how each of them finds the inner strength to tackle the individual trial she is facing and theme of perseverance that permeates the book. I'm also encouraged by the idea that life isn't over when your children are raised and out of the house; there's always a way to make a new path for yourself, if you are only brave enough to forge it. I hate spoiling the plot for books so all I can say is that I loved this book so much it's on my "best of 2017" shelf and I highly encourage you to read it. I was provided an eARC for review purposed by the publisher. Here is my honest review.
