Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"One day, after she had turned forty, Joan Brady realized she was on her own. No husband. No kids. She felt like someone had lobbed a hand grenade into her heart. At other people's baby showers, she thought she'd explode. The end of her childbearing years loomed like a tidal wave on the horizon, reminding her that she was not now, and never would be, a mother."--BOOK JACKET. "She could sink, or she could swim. In characteristic style, Joan let herself hit bottom - only to emerge incredibly joyous, bountiful, and awed by a sense of peace she could never have predicted."--BOOK JACKET. "Like having a long conversation with a very good friend, this is a letter of rapture and affirmation for all women who have not traveled the path to the delivery room, but have instead discovered a magical route of their own. A rare and wonderful gift that rejoices in being whole, female, and happy, this is Joan Brady's statement of celebration."--BOOK JACKET.
