One Woman’s Story About Coming Out Later In Life
Finally giving in to the realization her twenty-year marriage is over, Maisie feels like a failure – to herself and her kids. But living a life of quiet desperation has taken its toll and she can’t keep up the charade of the white picket fence any longer or she’ll go nuts. But is it too late? There was a time she smiled her way through life but now she bawls over her steering wheel on her way to work, touches up her make-up for her co-workers, then ugly-cries all the way home before mopping away trails of mascara to face her husband and kids.
As she plans her escape to a basement apartment big enough to house herself and her children, the unthinkable happens. She finds herself falling in love. Or at least she thinks she is. She fights these feelings with a fierce resistance. But night after night she tosses and turns on the sofa, knocking her little shih zhu, Poppy, from side to side as she struggles with her truth …
How can she possibly be 41 years old and in love with someone 9 years her junior … someone who she used to babysit … someone who happens to be a WOMAN …
Life is about change.
Sometimes it’s painful. Sometimes it’s beautiful.
But most of the time, it’s both.
