Not Your Everyday Housewife
Book 5: That Second Chance
A wise and humorous tale of living large after 40 as women finally make peace with themselves–wrinkles, blubber, neuroses, exes, and all.
Three women embark on a month-long “discovery” journey and uncover quite a few tidbits along the way…one bottle of Clairol Midnight will not cover a full head of red hair, and never talk to men wearing polyester pants hiked up with a tan belt. But most of what they unearth is about themselves–who they are, what they really want, what they really don’t want.
The center of controversy is a Maid-for-You mixer, which symbolizes a boring, routine suburban life with no second chances–then along comes insight in the form of Tula Rae, a sixty-something salsa-dancing, Dalai Lama-quoting, four-time widow in Spandex and a gray braid who gives them a different perspective on life, love, do-overs, and the real reason a man buys his woman a Maid-for-You mixer, which she says is all about S-E-X.
