Title: Forty Favours the Brave

Written by: Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills 

How can I be nearing middle age when 26 feels like yesterday? After the craziness of my 20s and hard work of my 30s, what’s next? Who am I now that youth is behind me?

These were the questions Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills asked themselves as they entered a milestone decade – their 40s. And they’re not alone. The second phase of life can seem daunting. But it’s so much more too. There is power in knowing who you are, ditching ‘nice’ for what’s important and arriving at the stage in your life when you decide rather than ‘slide’.

In Forty Favours the Brave, Lise and Sarah, along with women from all walks of life, share insightful tales about entering their 40s and beyond: the lessons learned, heartbreaks survived, things they wish they’d known … and the surprising, wondrous joy of life in its second act.

Brimming with wit, honesty and relatable ‘aha!’ moments, Forty Favours the Brave is the ultimate coming-of-age listen for any woman approaching (or in) her 40s.
