Life has changed a great deal over the past decades; for those born in the middle of the last century, today's world is certainly 'brave' and 'new'.
Sophie Carona, a worldly-wise woman, has written a personal account of her life up to the present day, which takes in world events and trends and invites readers to compare their own lives over almost seven decades.
By turns moving, light-hearted, funny and tragic, this memoir details daily life, births, marriages and deaths, as well as life's unexpected dramas and the changes in direction which occur as a consequence.
Inhabited by a wide cast of colourful real life characters, Sophie's life will strike a chord with readers of all ages who may find her philosophies and commentary interesting and thought-provoking.
A satisfying and inspiring read for anyone interested in our fellow human beings and becoming older and wiser.
