White had an impressive resume, started a business that failed, and then tried to re-enter the work force in her mid-fifties, only to learn that there is little demand for workers her age. Her retirement savings account depleted by her business, she at first lived in denial, then had to adjust to her new reality. White soon learned she wasn't alone. Here she invites you to look beyond your immediate circumstances to what is possible in the new normal of financial insecurity. It's too late for blame or shame-- do what you can now to create a decent third act. -- adapted from jacket.
