And finding true love again, along with peace within herself...Mary Jean Teachman invites you to experience the exhilarating highs, the crushing lows, and the life-affirming wisdom that she's gleaned as a 91-year-old wife, mother, and activist who recently lost her daughter.There is Gold in the Golden Years is a poignant and inspiring memoir that will lift your spirits as you partake of Mary Jean's upbeat, optimistic outlook about celebrating life and love in the present moment.Her resilient spirit is all the more remarkable and extraordinary, given the abuse and tragedies that she has endured since childhood in Detroit, Michigan.Raised during an oppressive era that offered few opportunities for girls and women, Mary Jean shares her philosophies about equality for women and people of color, along with understanding and hope for people with mental illness.Her vivid stories-some glamorous, some grotesque-will delight and disturb you, as you laugh, cry, and feel uplifted by her buoyant spirit that has enabled her to love and live life to the fullest, no matter the circumstances. And her spiritual quest for healing, along with her tips for a healthy, happy mind and body, offer insights into how to treat each day as a treasure while the years and decades pass.Now, as Mary Jean celebrates her 91st birthday with the release of this book, she wants you to know that the sunset years can be a joyous experience, because There is Gold in the Golden Years.
