Pam Ward is completely engaging as she narrates Wagman-Geller's in-depth look at a group of women who didn't stop achieving once they reached "a certain age." From Grandma Moses to Mother Teresa, from Dr. Ruth to the "Notorious" Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ward makes each of these extended biographies compelling listening. She doesn't attempt to emulate voices in dialogue but instead offers an intelligent examination of how these women refused to allow misogyny to hold them back. Upending the stereotypical myths relegating older women to oblivion, the women detailed in this audiobook continued to participate in and contribute to the world, rather than retreat into invisibility. Wagman-Geller highlights the wisdom and perseverance of these remarkable women, and Ward's narration makes us sit up and listen. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
