In her first non-fiction book, Midlife Mavericks, author Karen Blue presents the stories of nineteen American and Canadian women who left their countries, families, and cultural roles to begin new lives in Mexico. In elegantly framed vignettes, unmarried women in the second halves of their lives are gently seduced by the author to reveal the whispered heartbreaks, deep dissatisfactions, lusty machisma, and unapologetic wanderlust that drove them southward and inward into what was for them uncharted territory.

A Mexico book by Karen Blue. Here's an interesting collection of stories of nineteen women who came on their own to Mexico in recent years to settle in the Lake Chapala area. The book consists of eighteen interviews plus the story of the author herself. The women range in age from their 40's to their 80's. Their backgrounds and experiences and approaches to life are as varied as you can imagine. Some had good careers going for them or others were homemakers most of their lives. Some came to escape broken marriages. Some came simply because they had been here on a vacation and wanted to come back.

This was the book that convinced me that living in Mexico's Lake Chapala area was not only worth exploring, but would enable me to rebuild my own life. If the women whose stories are told here could build a new, more fulfilling life, then so could I. And I did. As different as these women and their stories are from each other, there are still threads throughout them that reminded me of myself. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in how women of a certain age have rebuilt their lives in ways highly personal to themselves.

I really enjoyed reading each of these stories. I was intrigued by how each of these women made a great life for themselves sometimes in spite of very difficult odds.

The title of the book should be "Midlife Mavericks WHY Women Reinvent Their Lives in Mexico". This poorly written book does little to describe women reinventing their lives IN Mexico. Most of their stories dwell on why they moved to Mexico, the typical; divorce, retirement, adventure. I think most "Midlife Mavericks" can already relate to this and would like to read more about what actually happened once these women moved to Mexico. The stories are confusing and not well written. The author jumps between her move to Mexico and that of the person she is interviewing without making much distinction. In nearly every story she spends several lines describing the smoking habits of the women and how the smoke swirls around in the air or they tap their cigarette to the ashtray, please spare us. One of the women the author inteviewed moved to Mexico due to the health problems she suffered while living in Texas. Now this peaked my interest as I wondered what kind of health care she received in Mexico, did her health improve, etc but alas none of these questions were answered.

If you want a light read with not much substance then this book would be fine. On the other hand if you have ever considered relocating in "midlife", especially to another country, I think you will find this book disappointing.

A fun read but very outdated

It was so good that I wanted to read more of her books.
I enjoyed the book. It was honest and straight forward. It could have gone into the surrounding areas and some of the neighbors just a bit more. My wife and I are considering retiring to the area half of the year. I understand this book was about women starting over. I would like to see Blue write another on couples starting over. With todays economy the US is looking less and less affordable for retirement.
Great points in this book though, we need to start learning Spanish now!
