We Who Took a Leap - From Where Our Mothers Left Off, is a book of interviews that explores how a few mid-life women have made a giant departure in consciousness...lifestyle...goals and ambitions...values about what it means to be a woman...how our journey as mid-life women is distinguished from our mothers' journeys...but also how we've gleaned from their virtues and the gifts they gave us, the seeds they planted that have contributed to who we are.
