Find Your Reason to Be Here: The Search For Meaning in Midlife is where I share what I have learned from years of research into the psychological legacy of boomers, where the idea of ‘midlife’ came from, and how boomers can make the most of this unique new stage of emotional development.
“In 100 pages, with an intriguing bibliography, this is a quick but comprehensive overview of our generation at this moment in the 21st century. Carter’s telling is at once realistic and optimistic—and her own story is living proof. “Why did I write this book?” she asks in her prologue, and then answers with a quote from Joan Baez: ‘Action is the greatest antidote to despair.’ Carter never looks at our generation through rosy glasses. Your even-handed reporting and your clear and compassionate writing help me understand the challenges and opportunities we all face. Thank you.” – Carrie Tuhy

“There are many books about midlife crisis these days. However, there is something quite compelling about a writer baring her emotional soul to the anonymous reader.

Complete with a reference guide and peppered with motivating quotes and resources, Laura Lee’s book is a quick read, sure to give you a boost of inspiration for managing your own midlife crisis!” – Boomer, LA
“Midlife Magic reads like a talk with a good friend who really, really gets it. Instead of judgment and criticism for all the crazy thoughts and feelings that come with the territory of midlife, we get support, understanding and a conspiratorial, “I know exactly how you feel!”
Using advice, thought-provoking ideas and humble story telling, Midlife Magic inspires and guides us as we do the work of our own midlife crisis.” - Karen author of theBestKeptSecret.ca

“Like a scrapbook of snapshots, Midlife Magic recounts a long journey through a series of adventures in self-discovery. It will certainly help a guy understand what all the fuss is about.” -Philip Persinger, author of Do the Math: a novel of the inevitable
