Medieval mystics have much wisdom to offer contemporary middle-agedwomen grappling with empty nests, evolving careers andrelationships, spiritual growth, and physical issues. Mechthild,for example, began her writing career at the age of fifty. And Julian,referring to Christ as "e;our kind mother, our gracious mother,"e;has a vision of Christ allowing us to make mistakes, a helpfulimage for women mothering nearly adult children. Each chapterfocuses on a topic of interest to modern middle-aged women. Useful for individuals and groups.
