Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Sally is living proof that it's never too late to start again. She failed Romance 101. She flunked Sex. She barely passed Motherhood. Oppressed by a bad marriage, the former art director of the Marshall Plan stumbled through decades of psychotherapy looking for herself. Finally, at age 73, she discovered the key. "Sally - The Older Woman's Illustrated Guide to Self-Improvement" tells the tragicomic saga of artist Sally Pierone, who captured her hard-won life lessons with her paintbrush.Judy Laddon traces Pierone's life journey from a sparkling young woman to a repressed, unhappy wife and mother - and finally, to a surprising triumph as an artist and self-taught therapist. With empathy and humour, Laddon vividly captures Sally's larger-than-life personality and zest for living. Many of Sally's delightful full-colour illustrations are also featured. Read Sally to laugh and learn: How to find yourself before all your hair is grey; Helpful strategies for coping with a surly spouse - and for enjoying life as a single woman; What not to do if your child takes drugs; and how to jump off the raft of your dysfunctional family of origin. This true story inspires and encourages women that there is life after a failed marriage - and that it's possible to reinvent yourself at every stage of life.
