Coming of Age

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
When Jessica's husband of 34 years left her for a younger woman, she thought her life would be solitary thereafter. How wrong she is: with her children, grandchildren, friends and neighbours and Mother downing cans of Red Bull in her retirement home, plus the activities that go on in a small town, her life is often very funny. There is even new love. Humorous chicklit for the older woman. More

About Ros Glancey

Ros Glancey is the fiction writing name used by Barbara Abbs, garden writer (Guide to French Gardens; Choosing & Using Climbing Plants; Gardens of Belgium and the Netherlands; and The Conservatory Month by Month)

'When I reached pensionable age, as a woman I suddenly felt I had become a non-person. But women's lives today are vastly different from those of our mothers and grandmothers. For one thing, our mothers are probably still alive and we have working daughters, and grandchildren, plus friends and lovers. And even work...But this is still not really visible in literature.

Funny and uplifting!
I laughed out loud at the antics of Jessica, her family,
friends and neighbours.
So good to know that one can still have fun after the
Age of 60...
Highly recommend if you're in need of a laugh!

I couldn't stop laughing out loud while reading this book. It is very funny and very true. Women of a certain age are sure to recognise its dilemmas in their own lives and feel all the better for laughing at them. Definitely a book for cheering oneself up. Who knows, it's good to be reminded that one's love life might not be over just yet.

Review by: David Gee on May 20, 2011 :
This is a laugh-out-loud excursion into Bridget Jones territory, with a heroine who's old enough to know better and - most of the time - does. When she finally overcomes her inhibitions and lets her hair down, there's a deleriously awkward bedroom scene which many older readers (and some younger ones too) will identify with. An uplifting read from start to finish.
