"Charming, delightful, and enlightening . . .a constant reminder to live your life fully, forgive yourself daily, and love yourself more . . .[a] gem of a memoir" (Amy Ferris, author of Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Midlife Crisis). With one bounced check, Nancy Brook's world collapsed around her. She was charged with a felony and thrown in jail even though her husband had pilfered money out of their business account. Eventually, the charges were dismissed, but her marriage and business were over. A decade later at age forty-three, Nancy thrived as a bank vice president and single parent. Still, she couldn't get her dating act together. After seven break-ups in seven years, she knew it was time for a change. The cure for her dating blues? A seven-hundred-mile cycling expedition from Bordeaux to the Alps. In France, Nancy wasn't a corporate manager, a mother, or someone's girlfriend. She was reborn into a beautiful new world—without responsibilities or expectations. Cycling, Wine, and Men: A Midlife Tour de France reveals an introspective journey through post-divorce dating, single parenthood, and finding happiness and independence as an unattached woman in her prime. Nancy had thought the perfect guy would make life complete. Instead she learned that pursuing passions and fulfilling lifelong dreams created deeper fulfillment than her latest homme parfait. Experience the ride of a lifetime as Under the Tuscan Sun meets Sex and the City. "Zippy read filled with heart and soul . . . Nancy Brook will make you shout 'Vive la Chemin!'" —Suzy Gershman, author of C'est La Vie "Cycling, Wine, and Men is sure to inspire others to follow their bliss." —Theo Pauline Nestor, author of How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed
