Juicy Tomatoes (eBook)

Tales from the Vine: Juicy Tomatoes Talk About Being Female, Over Fifty, and in Full Bloom
Juicy Tomatoes introduces you to a group of women who will happily plead guilty to being female and over fifty. That’s because they know that being a fifty-plus woman means having wisdom, passion, and savvy to spare, and that the second half of life can be just as fun and fulfilling as the first. They’ve seen through the myths that say an over-fifty woman can’t have good sex or a new career and they’ve forged ahead despite societal pressure to quietly step down. These juicy tomatoes are redefining what it means to be a woman over fifty and blazing a trail that promises to change the culture and the lives of those green tomatoes who come after them. Juicy Tomatoes is a refreshing and revealing look at how women meet the challenges and embrace the opportunities that come with age. These stories from life beyond fifty are funny, poignant, inspiring, and unflinchingly honest.
