In this groundbreaking and insightful study Terri Apter traces womens midlife course, drawing on detailed interviews with women in their forties and fifties. Apter finds that women experience a renewed sense of themselves and see the second half of life as an opportunity for psychological growth and fulfillment instead of a time of despair over lost youth and beauty.

She divides midlife women into four categories--traditional, innovative, expansive, protesting--and shows the cause for the midlife crisis and the path toward resolution for each type.

An extremely important book. . . . Her writing offers perceptions rare in psychology. — Carol Gilligan

A forceful examination of women who find in their 40s and 50s a psychological growth hormone to replace lost estrogen. — Kirkus Reviews

This innovative study emphasizes skills women can use to create new visions for themselves. — Publishers Weekly

Terri Apter is a writer, psychologist, and Fellow of Newnham College, Cambridge University. Her books include The Sister Knot and What Do You Want from Me? She lives in Cambridge, England.
