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

Delightful, Inspirational Nov 28, 2007
Wisdom from the Middle Ages for Middle-aged Women: This book is great (and I'm well past middle age). The stories and lessons to be learned from these mystics, interspersed with experiences and challenges faced by the author make it difficult to put down. I plan to recommend and give copies to several friends. I highly recommend this lovely book.
Insightful and meaningful Nov 6, 2007
This book is an inspiration for women of all ages and in particular those approaching or in middle age. Ms. Hamilton does a delightful job of introducing the reader to these wonderfully wise Medieval women. The author shared the wisdom from these women in such a way that one can identify with them and be inspired by their courage, faith, and ability to persevere. There is a wonderful blend of personal and historical and I am spiritually enriched from having read this book. I have ordered more as gifts for friends and feel they too will thoroughly enjoy and benefit from the wisdom in this book.
