Synopsis: Midlife can be a time of reflection, rebellion, or reconnecting to old or new interests and activities. It can also be a time when losses start to happen or begin to pile up such as divorce, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or home, the moving out and on of grown children--and learning how to move forward can be a challenge.

In the pages of "Midlife Maze: A Map to Recovery and Rediscovery after Loss", seasoned psychologist Janis Clark Johnston looks at the geography of loss in midlife, the way it can affect us, and what we can do to get back on track or redirect ourselves when necessary.

Through first hand stories and practical exercises, "Midlife Maze" aptly leads readers through the midlife maze to a place of recovery, purpose, and peace.

Critique: Exceptionally well written, impressively informative, exceptionally well organized and presented, "Midlife Maze: A Map to Recovery and Rediscovery after Loss" is as thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is inspired and inspiring. Thoroughly accessible for the non-specialist general reader, and having extraordinary value for academia as well, "Midlife Maze" is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that "Midlife Maze" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $30.30).
