Ann is 60 and suffering from celibacy. Going through two divorces has made her skittish; having two children has made her cautious. But finally her longing for sex and romance sends her hurtling out of her comfort zone.
Her adventure begins with a very nice transvestite and gets more interesting from there. Put a divorcee raised in the 1950s into the Internet world and this is what you get: a comic romp that evolves into a profound and touching experience, complete with some meaty moral questions and answers. Ranging from Montclair, New Jersey, to Harare, Zimbabwe, Daring to Date Again: A Memoir is a compelling, often racy memoir of one woman's late-life adventures with sex and dating in the modern world.
What a beautiful, moving, honest, and brave journey I just returned from! Ann takes the listener with her to dinner dates, adventures across the planet, and bedroom romps, making you feel like she's not just someone you can identify with, but like she's a trusted friend. Highly, highly recommend!
I finished listening to this book in record time as I spent much of my weekend stuck in traffic. I was so engaged to the story that I didn't even notice 2 hours had passed in my 20 min commute. The next day the same thing happened with traffic and I was grateful. Ann does such a great job narrating that I felt I was watching the events of story unfold from front row seats. I was thoroughly entertained.
