The landscape of age is that of Another Country. In this helpful, hopeful field guide, Mary Pipher turns her keen eye to a troubled passage—the journey into old age.
She writes about our parents and grandparents, because as they grow older, the relationships among us become more complex and difficult just when they need to be the closest and strongest. And the aging process can be just as painful for us—daughters and sons, granddaughters and grandsons—as for them.
The gradual turning of life's tide can take us by surprise, as we find ourselves unprepared to begin caring for those who have always cared for us. And many of us realize that we are also lacking a useful way to think about growing older ourselves.
We need new ways of supporting one another—new ways of sharing our time and our energy and our love. In Another Country, Mary Pipher shows us how.
