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.

For almost four decades, Bartholomew Neil has done nothing but live with his mom. When she begins calling him Richard—for reasons unknown—and then dies, Bartholomew is woefully unprepared.” A clue comes in the form of a “Free Tibet” letter he finds in his mother’s underwear drawer, and so Bartholomew awkwardly starts his new life, writing Richard Gere a series of highly intimate fan letters. Jung’s theory of synchronicity, the mystery of women, the Dalai Lama’s teachings, alien abduction, cat telepathy and the Catholic Church are all explored in depth by Bartholomew’s epistles—but mostly the letters outline one man’s heartbreakingly earnest attempt to assemble a family of his own. A struggling priest, a “girlbrarian,” her foul-mouthed brother and Richard Gere (well, sort of) join the quest. In a rented Ford Focus, they travel to Canada in search of Bartholomew’s biological father and end up finding so much more.

As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward. From her temporary obsession with marrying Matt Damon to a daydream involving hypnotic iguanas to her son’s request that she buy a necklace to “be like the other moms,” Hollis holds nothing back. With unflinching faith and tenacity, Hollis spurs other women to live with passion and hustle and to awaken their slumbering goals.
