Sometimes the right book just shows up when you need it most. That is the case with this book for me. I don't have a lot in common with Pipher, but this book resonates with me.

In 2002, Pipher fell into a deep depression. She had to learn about herself and how to care for herself. This is an important part of life for all people, I think. Although all older people don't fall into depression, I believe many of us start to examine our lives.

Have we been successful? What is success? Have we left a last legacy? Made a difference? These are some of the aspects of life that Pipher is examining in this book and I have been thinking about some of the same things. I appreciate her willingness to be so open about her life and letting us (me) eavesdrop on her internal conversation.

I know I need to read this again.
