REVIEW: Barbara and Susan’s Guide to the Empty Nest: Discovering New Purpose, Passion, and Your Next Great Adventure by Barbara Rainey, Susan Alexander Yates

Barbara and Susan help empty-nest women redefine the “mom” role.  I thought they did a good job looking at the empty nest stage through a variety of circumstances.  They include their own experiences and they draw on the stories of other women who have moved beyond the high school years.  It’s coming and I can see some good things and some sad things.  Having just moved our oldest into his own apartment for his first real job, I thought it was time to tackle this topic.


I greatly enjoyed the insight.  I felt that enough of the experiences they portrayed were close to my own.  I found a “fit” in several of their topics.  Thanks to Bethany House Publishers for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
