From the bestselling author of A Year by the Sea, a true
coming-of-age story for every woman who has asked herself:
Nearly a decade after the debut of her bestselling,
life-changing classic A Year by the Sea, Joan Anderson is
busy. When she's not on the road helping groups of women
search for their true selves, she's working on her latest
book. And when she's "not working," she's taking care of her
husband, her grown children, her grandchildren, and her
ninety-one-year-old mother. Joan is stretched so thin from
being all things to all people that she doesn't even realize
how out of control her life has become. Ironically, she
finds she needs to listen to her own advice more than anyone
else does. It takes a serious intervention--from her best
friends, her doctor, and her husband--before she finally
The Second Journey chronicles Joan's quest to restore her
own equilibrium and find herself again. Suffused with her
characteristic humor and warmth, this is a book for any
woman who wants to know how to awaken her own independent
spirit and set herself on a new path. Joan shares her
musings on love, marriage, growing older, family, aging
parents, and spirituality as she casts a watchful eye on her
own life and helps readers find peace and inspiration within
their own lives. She offers reassurance that the best is yet
to come, and empowers other women to come of age in the
middle of life.
The call to a second journey usually commences when
unexpected change is thrust upon you, causing a crisis of
feelings so great that you are stopped in your tracks.
Personal events such as a betrayal, a diagnosis of serious
illness, the death of a loved one, loss of self-esteem, a
fall from power are only a few of the catalysts. A woman
caught thusly has no choice but to pause, isolate, even
relocate until she can reevaluate the direction in which she
should head. Should she stay the course or choose another
path? The goal is to come of age in the middle of life
rather than live out our days lacking purpose and energy.
It's all about rearranging our lives in our own image.
