    1. Sadly I am a latecomer to this author's writings.cially since she is no longer with us. But I so enjoyed this book, one that I randomly chose from the library shelf entirely for it's title!I love her humor and wit in this bookd her caution that being old nowadays is not for sissies. You're never too old to learn something new or explore new things.One quote from this book that I love: "family life cannot go on in the same old way anymore than any other drama can, once the cast of characters chan [...]


    2. There were parts of this book that were really great and reaffirming to read. I found myself getting a bit distracted by some of the underlines etc that were in the text from a previous reader, so probably didn't read it as thoroughly as I should have.I have loaned it to two friends. One predictably, loved it, the other, just as predictably didn't. One thought it heartwarming, the other thought it gooey and overly sentimental. One has daughters, one has sons. One voted for Kerry, one for Bush.


    3. I knew better. Of course I did. But my copy didn't have the subtitle, just a lovely illustration of four little girls and four old women, presumably the same persons separated by time. But I knew before I was a chapter in that what I was getting was heartwarming, wholesome, and largely jocular advice on how to be a spunky old woman. There were parts that I enjoyed, but overall I found it too sticky, too gooey, too traditionally grandmotherly. Here, have a nice cup of tea, dearie. Oops, I spilled [...]


    4. Loved this book from the perfect title to the honest revelations of growing older. Frances Weaver said what is in many of our hearts as we are known as Grandmothers but still feel like 'girls'd we still are. It's a joyful book to open your eyes to the blessings and adventures of agingd it's a bit of a kick-in-the-pants to any of us who need to realize all these truths and 'own' them. There is always more life to be lived!


    5. For those of us who are grandmothers over 55, The Girls with the Grandmother Faces reminds us that our lives still have enormous potential. Regardless of where we are in life, we can open our eyes to the wonderful possibilities that life still offers and survive the struggles that life may throw our way.


    6. This author really needed a good editor. She goes on and on. Very one sided view of how to handle being a widow. Her solution is to travel to every corner of the earth. She is the widow of a doctor and doesn't seem to grasp that not everyone has that kind of cash. I, obviously, did not like this book very much.


    7. Enjoyable and inspirational book for women I'd almost say of all ages. Let's face it many women will find themselves living alone and this book made me step back a bit and look at what it's like for "older" women who find themselves alone for whatever the reason is. Full of ideas and energy and a great book if you are looking for an interesting book that's not your typical self-help type read.


    8. Couldn't decide between 2 or 3 stars. It was interesting for ideas on how to live on your own and get out more. Neither are a problem for me so it might have been better if it was more useful. There are funny sections tho.


    9. This book provides suggestions for celebrations of life for women (could be men) over 55. There are excellent suggestions for moving on in life as a single person and making changes. And there are excellent ideas for any person over 55 to enrich her life.


    10. I'm only in my forties but I thought this book had a lot of good things to say about just getting out there and embracing life--no matter your circumstances. I'd recommend this book for anyone about 45 and older. I felt inspired to get up and get living.


    11. Great travel ideas and coping positively with being a widow.The author went back to college at 59 - what an inspiration. The Title of the book is my favorite part.




    12. Good read. Makes you think about how you can make your life more enjoyable as you get older, rather than sitting around doing nothing.
