Join Barb and John as they review and analyze some of the top stories of the week and try to figure out where things are heading in relation to the Russia investigation, Syria, Facebook and Zuckerberg, Ryan’s retirement, and everything else that happens between now and Saturday night when we air!
Joining the show during the second hour is former Yale and Columbia University Teachers College professor and clinical psychologist of 30-plus years, Roni Beth Tower. Roni will be discussing her book, Miracle at Midlife: A Transatlantic Romance.
Are you ready for a mid-life miracle? What does it take to make a huge mid-life change, and will you have the courage to trade your life in for a new one?
These questions are answered in a gripping memoir by an Ivy League-trained clinical psychologist who found herself making an enormous change in her life after turning 50.
Miracle at Midlife: A Transatlantic Romance is a memoir chronicling the two-year courtship between a divorced American attorney living on a converted barge in the center of Paris and an empty-nested clinical and research psychologist who works from her home in Connecticut. Throughout their journey, they conquer challenges of internal demons (mostly hers) and external threats (mostly kids, careers, and culture) as they share adventures in their respective worlds.
“My story is less about the healing power of love than it is about the powerful forces of destiny, the way our lives push us toward lessons we need to learn to become the people we are meant to be,” says Roni Beth. “It is about the necessity of choice in the context of inevitability, the ways in which we create possibilities in our lives and then are free to decide how to respond to them.”
During the interview, Roni Beth will share
- How to make mid-life changes.
- The secret to finding second-chance love.
- What it takes to maintain an international, long-distance relationship.
- The benefits of an active sex life after 50.
- How one can transform his or her life and find a purpose.
- What we need to understand about the forces and types of communication that bring people together or pull them apart.
