The very concept of retirement is changing, especially among women. Today''s mature female is a pacesetter, exemplifying a unique approach to work, service, and learning. These women, age 60 and older, find themselves entering the last third of their lives in a state of relative health, optimism, and personal freedom, and are beginning to ask, "What now?" Based on extensive interviews, research, and the authors'' professional and personal experiences, A Time of Our Own explores the opportunities available in one''s "third third." A must-read for all women entering this exciting new chapter of life.
