Lessons for an Unscripted Life
A memoir chronicles a challenging post-career journey to a life of reimagined possibilities. A harried scientist and business executive sets off to make a break from her corporate decades and have an “extraordinary” retirement. She launches into a five-phase “Project Escape,” complete with a vision, goals, and a scorecard of success to deliver this next chapter as a volunteer in the island country of Palau. Her struggle with purpose, identity, ego, and marriage provides an unvarnished but encouraging reference for those pondering major life changes.
