If I were an eloquent writer,
whose thoughts were focused, clear and sharp,
this is the book I would like to have written.
Pulitzer Prize winner, Anna Quindlen's,
LOTS OF CANDLES, PLENTY OF CAKE,
is a memoir written from her perspective
as a sixty year old woman.
(Perhaps that's one of the reasons it
resonates so well for me.)
In it she covers most of the big topics
in her/our lives:
relationships, family, career, balancing it all,
spirituality, faith and religion,
This book should be required reading for any woman,
midlife or older,
any young woman about to embark upon
career and/or her own family,
and finally all men,
to give them a real woman's perspective.
I "read" it as I often do using my
Walkman and the audio version,
read by Quindlen herself,
and it was excellent.
However, I was so touched by this book
I believe I'm going to have to buy it
in hardback, just to have a copy to dip
back into from time to time for its wisdom.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!
