Half a century of your life has vanished, leaving only patches of memory, some brightly colored and joyous, others just blurred images. Now that I am 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 and cannot stop herself from thinking the unthinkable. A holiday in Thailand goes shockingly wrong; a sudden death gives a new lease of life. Ordinary, everyday things are different when your fifty and time is running out. Here are stories about women at fifty, not young but not old, either!
