Praise For…

"Reading this book is like talking to a really good friend who is prepared to hear your midnight confessions and then share a few of her own. Getting older is no picnic, but reading this book offers the immeasurable comfort of knowing we are not alone in the journey and that as much as there are moments to weep, there are also lots of moments when laughter is the only sane response."
--Pearl Cleage, author of Seen It All and Done the Rest

"Honest, heartfelt voices."
--Publishers Weekly

I found it a book that's often amusing, always inspiring, and definitely worth reading. –William Fisher, Huffington Post

[In the Fullness of Time] without exception, honest and revealing. – Donna Marchetti, Cleveland Plain Dealer

I did immensely “enjoy” IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME, and I did need to know the remarkable depth and range of thoughts, feelings, fears, risks, joys, wounds and failures that editors Emily W. Upham and Linda Gravenson invited their 32 literary guests to share. – Pauline Finch,
