"I'm not a celebrity. I'm not a call girl, dominatrix, nymphomaniac, stripper, porn star, or swinger. I am a middle-class northern woman-–a mother, daughter, and sister who has a normal, healthy sexual appetite."
So begins the true story of Seraphina Guile, a woman who has just experienced her first full-on vaginal orgasm at age fifty. The problem is, the man who unknowingly rocked her world refuses to have sex with her the next time they are together.
While Seraphina waits, bewildered, for her man friend to get his act together, she explores the big questions: How did I get here, and where am I going? Should I keep going? And she invites readers to join her search for a resolution to this frustrating situation.
Me at Fifty is a story of second (and third) chances, the impact of a sister's botched suicide, self-discovery, a Richard Gere look-alike, and Seraphina's search for another knock-out orgasm.
