This book is an excellent analysis of key issues about an often-overlooked segment of the population. Lesbians at midlife experience similar struggles as those of heterosexual women. However, their challenges are further exacerbated by their sexual orientation. The book's various segments focuses on various aspects of these lesbian midlife issues in a very informative and entertaining way. Particularly notable is the segment entitled "Lesbian dating and courtship from young adulthood to midlife". It was extremely interesting and brought up quite a few points about the way women, in particular lesbians, perceive courtship and dating and the roles people play. It is books like these that help bring much needed awareness about the lesbian population to the public in general. I highly recommend it.

This is an interesting book that covers such topics as: the impact of midlife on the lesbian couple, friendships at midlife, taking care of dying parents, dating, chemical dependency and parenting.
It's an excellent read for lesbian therapists and glbt-friendly therapists to gain a better grasp of lesbian concerns.
