A Jubilarian herself, Harris draws on her own experience and cites others--including May Sarton, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, M.F.K. Fisher, Florida Scott-Maxwell, Doris Grumbach, as well as more than one hundred "ordinary" women--to reflect the variety and vitality of this unheralded community. In lyrical prose punctuated by exercises and meditations, she invites readers to rest and reflect, stop and take stock, celebrate and cultivate the rich rewards of a mature spirituality.
