Content

Many women assume that midlife marks the end of their most powerful period, when their sexual intensity, emotional vitality, and persuasiveness was at its peak. 
Not so, shows author Susan Schachterle in this warm, funny, and gorgeously written book.
Using incidents from history, case histories from her counseling work, stories from her life, and examples from her corporate and non-profit consulting career, she shows that midlife in fact represents a time when women's sexuality, wisdom, and power can come into full bloom.Schachterle describes three archetypes that guide women's unfoldment after midlife.
The Bitch is a woman who can make things happen.
The Crone is the repository of hard-won wisdom and experience.
And the Harlot gives herself time to absorb the beauty around her-as well as reveling in her deep store of sexual knowledge.
For a generation of women who are healthier, wealthier, and more attuned to their spiritual fulfillment, this book engages the heart and the senses to offer a grand new image of the rich possibilities available to women at midlife.

  •     During middle age women often struggle with redefining themselves. This book is a wonderful tool of empowerment for anyone with at least a few gray streaks in her hair. While other authors have embraced the [...] and even some the Crone, Schacherterie really breaks ground in her chapters on the Harlot, the sensuous woman of middle age - that gracious and nervy being that exudes beauty and joy despite not looking like what our media driven culture (excepting the Dove campaign) feeds us about sensuality.
  •     This book has some good info in it, but not much that hasn't been written before, and quite frankly, I found the "bitch" word usage tiresome. To be honest, I donated the book before getting to the Harlot section.
