Role models are not just for the young. Professional life coach Peggy Bonsee believes they are just as important in later years as when we start out in life. This book profiles five "golden ladies" who inspired and taught her by tackling the inevitable challenges of age with creativity and panache. Readers will meet the wise and funny Claire, the smart and modest Jane, the practical and loving Lilma, the fearless Estelle, and the "very unconventional" Maggie. As their lively profiles show, these very different women shared a determination to live as fully as possible throughout their long and richly experienced lives, modeling the kinds of attitudes and decisions that will help readers negotiate the challenges of later life and enjoy increased well-being despite the circumstances. Thoughtful reflections, optional exercises, and a valuable resource section add guidance to inspiration, making this book an invaluable resource for baby boomers facing retirement or anyone interested in the choices and attitudes that contribute to living well at any age.

Now a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts. MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers. The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.
