FIFTY IS NOT A FOUR-LETTER WORD a novel by Linda Kelsey

Hope is a middle aged woman who has a great job, a husband that loves her and a son getting ready to head off to college. She is also terrified because she is turning the big 50.

In her angst, she loses her job, drives her husband away, disgusts her son and has a fling with another guy on a little jaunt she takes to clear her head.

Getting it together she treks up a mountain with friends, gets another job that is even better, I believe, and tries to win her husband back. She is on the way to overcoming the big 50.

This story is funny and sad at the same time. I passed that number a long time ago and was told by a friend that when one hits 50 all hell breaks loose. I like me just as I am, maybe a little slower doing things but hey, what's the rush. I'm still waiting for everything to break loose!

Thanks again Miriam and Hatchette book group for a great 4 point book.
