Now That I'm Fifty is a collection of stories about women at the 50 milestone. Some are looking back, wondering what to do about their spreading behinds, others are getting ready to fly out into the dangerous world, leaving their safe and secure homes. One woman deals with a broken marriage by learning how to salsa, another begins seeing things, while a third finds a new friendship with a stranger in a garden. A holiday in Thailand goes shockingly wrong, a sudden death gives a new lease of life. Ordinary, everyday things are different when you're fifty and time is running out. Now That I'm Fifty is about women at fifty, not young but not old, either!
