    For anyone going through the stage of an empty nest, there is going to be sadness. It is very difficult when all your children have grown up and moved out into the world. It is a painful loss, but a part of life.

    In this book, Barbara and Susan encourage women from all walks of life to cheer up, and find good things to come in the next stage of mothering.

    They share many stories from their own lives, and from others. The authors explain that in these times, it is not like when their own mothers were going through this. Their mothers, and those of that generation, knew who they were for life: Mothers and Wives. They did not have the type of empty nest we think of today. They may have had a bachelor or maiden adult child always living with them, or perhaps an aunt, grandmother, or uncle was a permanent part of the household. In those days, when all the children grew up, wives would focus just on continuing to be a good wife and taking care of the home. (Personally, this is the kind of mother and wife I will always want to be.)

    But for many women of today, they start a new career, begin a ministry, travel, or go back to school.

    They crave more friendships with other women, say the authors.

    This book would be best for modern Christian women who want ideas and encouragement to get through the empty nest.

    A help for mothers, Authors Rainey & Yates address the very real empty nest syndrome. Knowing that others feel as you do, you'll be refreshed by this book.

    Be encouraged by the truths shared, and the stories of how other women adjusted to this time in life. A practical book, you'll want to get comfy, pour a cup of coffee, and see what others just like you did to move to the next phase in life. An exciting phase!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a positive review.

    When I first picked this book up I didn't think I would have much in common with the authors. However they write to a broad audience of empty nest women. I am encouraged by the many examples they give of women dealing with their empty nest issues and moving through them to bigger and better things in the 2nd half of life! What a blessing to me, a woman who, with her husband made a major life change just as the children were leaving home. Thanks Barbara and Susan
