Act your age! From her mother's admonition in childhood, a middle aged, twice-married mother of four and a product of the Deep South makes her way through a meandering inner journey towards a quiet epiphany revealing what her mother's words really mean. This rite of passage at the age of fifty unfolds through 12 narratives that will evoke both laughter and tears. Each chapter is an independent reflection on the daily anecdotes all of us live each day in the course of growing up and growing older. Reading the narratives may be like going through a shoe box of old photoyou find in the attic, not arranged in any seeming order, but, creating a logic of their own. Memorable characters like rise from the narrator's Southern Gothic roots. The narrator, prides herself in being an introspective and competent adult, but her naivete demonstrates that being an adult is really a state of mind, and finding truth is like entertaining company with chipped china.
