The Gap Year(S) (eBook)
Because Sometimes It Takes More Than One.
de Nathy Gaffney
Sobre o livro
Facing a crumbling marriage, an insecure financial future, and the daunting prospect of single parenthood, Nathy Gaffney was scared. At the age of forty-seven, it felt like all of her friends had their shit together while she was a struggling actress flailing for a lifeline. How would she survive—and thrive—in her new reality?
In her no-holds-barred memoir The Gap Year(s), Gaffney takes readers on a raw and rollicking odyssey through heartbreak, utter resolve, and ultimate redemption. Refusing to take on the role society designates for women in their middle-aged years, Gaffney opts for writing her own rules. With courage and relentless enthusiasm, she shape-shifts herself and her life into what she wants it to become, not what society thinks it should be.
In a voice that is relatable, deeply human, and often laugh out loud funny, Gaffney has poured out her greatest fears, failings and disappointments onto these pages. It's an inspiring journey that led Gaffney to retire from her wilting acting career, reinvent herself as a successful leadership coach, and to find (and very nearly lose) unexpected love in the arms of an adventure-seeking, high altitude mountaineer twenty years her junior.
The Gap Year(s) is a story of hope, empowerment, and refusing to settle for anything less than you deserve.
