Fifty Is Not a Four-Letter Word

Linda Kelsey,

Fifty Is Not a Four-Letter Word
 
 
In this heartwarming, spirited read about family and aging, big mid-life changes lead to big revelations for a woman who seemingly "has it all."

As Hope Lyndhurst-Steele approaches her 50th birthday, she feels like she has it all: a top magazine job, a wonderful husband, a loving son, and tons of friends—yet fifty still feels like a four-letter word.

When she returns to the office after her holiday break, she's shocked to be informed by senior management that she's out. As she starts spending her days at home, her relationship with her usually patient husband Jack starts to become strained, and her teenage son is more interested in chasing after a local single mom than spending his last year at home with her. And Hope's own mother, who she never got along with, has cheerily announced that she's got six months left to live.

Hope is relieved when a solo trip to Paris wakes up her long-dormant libido, but when she returns, she finds that her husband is giving her more space than she'd like—he's decided to move out.

As Hope wonders if she'll be able to make it to fifty-one with her sanity and her family intact, she discovers some interesting truths about herself and her age: that the best is yet to come.
