Katrina Kennison

It is an honor and privilege to carry Katrina Kenison's books in our catalog. Her writing is warm, real, and deeply supportive -- like sitting down with a best friend over a cup of tea. Her latest book is especially like that. It begins with loss -- the death of a friend -- and sudden ''empty-nest syndrome,'' three years too soon.

The eldest son goes off to college, and Katrina is looking forward to real time with her second son, Jack. But fifteen-year-old Jack checks out of life that year, and the family spirals into darkness and confusion. When Jack decides to attend boarding school three hours away, Katrina's life abruptly changes. Suddenly her role as a mother, with its endless meals, cleaning-up, helping with homework -- all that defined her for twenty years -- is simply gone. She wakes up each day to a silent, undemanding house and empty hours. ''My life as a mother of children at home is over,'' she writes. Thus begins her ''magical journey'' to reinvent herself and to write about her discoveries along the way.

Katrina has a gift of sharing deeply personal details and making them shared universal truths at the same time. If you are a mother wondering how you are going to cope when your children leave home, look no further. This book is for you and for all those women turning toward mid-life with fear and excitement about the unknown journey before them.
