'You're an angry insomniac with night sweats and memory loss... Hello?'
When a friend has the audacity to suggest that forty-five-year-old landscape gardener Eliza Hamilton is hurtling toward menopause, she is naturally appalled. Menopause is something that happens to other women, older women.
As Eliza tries to negotiate this new and confusing landscape, she also embarks on the biggest challenge of her career so far. But she soon discovers that juggling erratic mood swings with motherhood, demanding family members and domestic drudgery is far from the harmonious scenario she'd envisaged.
If Eliza wants to embrace midlife without the crisis, she must first make some grown up choices and face some uncomfortable truths.
Betsy Price takes the frustrations and fears of midlife and blends them with deliciously dark humour in this coming of middle age novel.
