“Ambrose’s memoir/how-to-survive-aging guidebook reads like a mashup of Erma Bombeck and Nicole Hollander’s Sylvia comic strip…The originality is in Ambrose’s unique life story… I feel I have encountered her material in books by Bombeck or Nora Ephron.”~The Critic Report

Ambrose recalls raising kids, growing older, and staying passionate about life.
