Some brief overview of this book

The Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author of Let’s Take the Long Way Home now gives us a stunning, exquisitely written memoir about a dramatic turning point in her life, which unexpectedly opened up a world of understanding, possibility, and connection. New Life, No Instructions is about the surprising way life can begin again, at any age.

“What do you do when the story changes in midlife? When a tale you have told yourself turns out to be a little untrue, just enough to throw the world off-kilter? It’s like leaving the train at the wrong stop: You are still you, but in a new place, there by accident or grace, and you will need your wits about you to proceed.

“Any change that matters, or takes, begins as immeasurably small. Then it accumulates, moss on stone, and after a few thousand years of not interfering, you have a glen, or a waterfall, or a field of hope where sorrow used to be.

“I suppose all of us consider our loved ones extraordinary; that is one of the elixirs of attachment. But over the months of pain and disrepair of that winter, I felt something that made the grimness tolerable: I felt blessed by the tribe I was part of. Here I was, supposedly solo, and the real truth was that I had a force field of connection surrounding me.

“Gail Caldwell offers the kind of wisdom and grace you’d wish a friend, sister, or mother might deliver. . . . Fans and new readers alike will find comfort in Caldwell’s voice.”— The Boston Globe

“Quiet but powerful . . . an absorbing meditation on grief and rebirth in midlife.”— More

“Eloquent and uplifting . . . a story to inspire you.”— Good Housekeeping

“Graceful and reflective.”— USA Today

“Caldwell confronts, with pluck and fortitude, the hurdles that life throws her way.”— Publishers Weekly

“An uplifting journey . . . This book celebrates finding support where you least expect it.”— Woman’s Day

“A beautifully written memoir.”— Parade

“A thoughtful, wide-eyed view of the world . . . Caldwell ably explores the shifts of our hearts.”— Kirkus Reviews

“Getting old, as they say, is not for sissies, and no one would call Pulitzer Prize–winner Caldwell a wimp. . . . There may not have been a road map for the life-changing trip she was about to take, but . . . Caldwell realized she had the power to endure.”— Booklist
