Author Deirdre Blair, has released a new book: "Calling It Quits: Late Life Divorce and Starting Over." Blair interviewed more than 400 ex-wives and ex-husbands, aged 50 to 83, who had ended marriages that had lasted anywhere from 20 to 60 years. She also talked to adult children of older divorced parents. The book explores what an AARP Magazine survey referred to as the "groundbreaking" and growing trend of late-life divorce and provides an insider look at life in the years after the end of a long-term union.
Read about the book from the Hartford Courant. (last visited January 24, 2007 bgf)
