Goodreads:  Knocking on sixty, Barbara Stirling is too busy to find herself, while caring for her mother, husband, children, and grandchildren. But when she loses her job, everything changes. Exhausted, lonely, and unemployed, Barbara is forced to face her feelings and doubts. Then a troubled, vulnerable little boy walks into her life and changes it forever. 


Kritters Thoughts:  Barbara is a grandmother, mother, wife, daughter, teacher and an active member in her community and as things start to unravel she starts to unravel and those around her some help, but some assume that she will just take care of herself as she has always done.

I don't tend to read a book with a main character is of the advanced age, but I love this author, so I wanted to try this one out and I wasn't disappointed.  Although I am not in that stage of life, I still was able to relate with the character in that I am also a woman who wants to be there for anyone and be all things for everyone, so I loved seeing that at any age a woman can get overwhelmed and need a break from life.  

So if you tend to shy away from books that have women who are in their later years, try out this one, you should enjoy it.  

Do you read books with only characters your age?  (I tend to!)  Would you rather read books with characters older or younger than you?


Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
