Fifty is Not a Four-Letter Word Summary

Fifty is Not a Four-Letter Word by Linda Kelsey

For all fans of Thursdays in the Park, Quartet or Amour - or the perfect 50th birthday gift.

Life begins at fifty . . . Well, it certainly does for Hope, though not at all as she had planned. She reluctantly hits her half-century on New Year's Day and six months later she has lost her job, her husband and her mother. But Hope has guts - and a sense of humour. By the time she reaches fifty-one, she has acquired a taste for designer underwear, a Labrador puppy - and the memory of one perfect night in Paris. Who says fifty is over the hill?

Fifty is Not a Four-Letter Word Reviews

Bridget Jones for grown-ups! . . . Women "of a certain age" will relate to Hope as she struggles to make sense of her life. An enjoyable holiday read. * My Weekly *
The novel is fun and frothy and very good * Evening Standard *
A witty, involving novel * Easy Living *
A statement of intent, if ever there was one! * Choice *
Funny, spiky, and with the ring of truth on every page * Rosie Thomas *
Funny, perceptive - I absolutely loved it. * Penny Vincenzi *
Funny, wise and proof that the perfect heroine doesn't have to be a chardonnay-swilling thirty-something, this made me laugh and weep from start to finish. Linda Kelsey has the knack of making you care about her characters and she deals with huge issues with the lightest touch. I wish I'd written this! * Cathy Kelly *
Funny, wise, true and not just for women of fifty! * Wendy Holden *
Compulsive and poignant with well drawn characters. * Catherine Alliott *
This is a coming-of-age novel with a difference. The age in question is 50, which these days is arguably more difficult to handle than those awkward teenage years. Wise, witty and wonderful. * Sue Peart, You Magazine *
