The Brazen Biddy's Club
Ruth Newell, author
The Brazen Biddy's Club is a witty and moving fictionalized semi autobiographical story of a middle aged daughter and her elderly mother when they unexpectedly find themselves living together after a 40 year hiatus. After decades apart, the daughter chooses to remain to help her mother when, during an impromptu visit, she learns that her stepfather is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s. Over time, both women are transformed by their new relationship, and by the humor that sustains them during difficult times. They both learn to live their lives without the men they love and as self encouragement, they adopt the motto, “We aren't dead yet!” They make a bucket list, along with a hubbahubba wall of sexy senior clebs cut out from the mother’s AARP magazine. The Brazen Biddy's Club begins with the daughter adjusting to life in a senior community, and ends with the two women traveling north in an RV to bury the man they loved.
