Summary, etc.:
"No longer indispensable, no longer assured of our old carefully crafted identities, no longer beautiful in the way we were at twenty or thirty or forty, we are hungry and searching nonetheless." From the author of The Gift of an Ordinary Day, this intimate memoir of loss, self-discovery, and growth will resonate deeply with any woman who has ever mourned the passage of time, questioned her own purpose, or wondered, "Do I have what it takes to create something new in my life?" With the candor and warmth that have endeared her to readers, Kenison reflects on the inevitable changes wrought by time: the death of a dear friend, children leaving home, recognition of her own physical vulnerability, and surprising shifts in her marriage. She finds solace in the notion that midlife is also a time of unprecedented opportunity for growth as old roles and responsibilities fall away, and unanticipated possibilities appear on the horizon. More a spiritual journey than a physical one, Kenison's beautifully crafted exploration begins and ends with a home, a life, a marriage. But this metamorphosis proves as demanding as any trek or pilgrimage to distant lands-it will guide and inspire every woman who finds herself asking "What now?"

    "The afternoon of life can cast long shadows, but Katrina's beautiful observations on love, loss, growth and gratitude will brighten readers' worlds considerably. You won't find a better guide or friend to accompany you through the sorrows, joys, and mysteries we are all meant to share." -- Priscilla Warner, author of Learning to BreatheAn inspiring, beautiful book for every woman whose children have grown up, but who is not done growing herself.MAGICAL JOURNEY is a book of reflections by Katrina Kenison about the reality of a new life without children at home. She muses: "Just as our children are coming of age as young adults, we women are undergoing our own coming-of-age rites and passages. We may be eager for change or have it thrust upon us. Either way, though, we find ourselves put to the test." More an account of a spiritual journey than a physical one, this transformation begins and ends with a home, a life, a marriage. But in its own way, this metamorphosis is as demanding as any trek or pilgrimage to distant lands. MAGICAL JOURNEY explores the belief that even as old identities are outgrown, new ones begin to beckon, inspiring readers to summon enough courage to heed the call.
