Now That I’ M Fifty (Short Stories by Women)
Now That I’ M Fifty (Short Stories by Women)
Description
Back of the Book

Fifty! Half a century of your life has vanished, leaving only patches of memory, some brightly colored and joyous, others just blurred images. Now that I’m Fifty is a collection of stories about women at the 50 milestone. Some are looking back, wondering what to do about their spreading behinds; others are getting ready to fly out into the dangerous world, leaving their safe and secure homes.

These stories are about journeys that begin at fifty, either within oneself or without, in the big bad world. One woman deals with a broken marriage by learning how to salsa, another begins seeing things, while a third finds a new friendship with a stranger in a garden and cannot stop herself from thinking the unthinkable. A holiday in Thailand goes shockingly wrong; a sudden death gives a new lease of life. Ordinary, everyday things are different when you’re fifty and time is running out. Here are stories about women at fifty, not young but not old, either!

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
