“I am so inspired by Crone Chronicles 20-20, most recently by Sarah Pearlman’s essay “Learning to be Old,” that I’ve paused reading to the end of the collection in order to write my own aging essay. And, oh, another gift, being able to share Linda White’s essay, “You’re Too Big!”with my 11-year-old granddaughter here in Idaho, the granddaughter who was born to be, so far, the tallest in her class — a girl that’s been feeling the smallness in her bigness since her parents’ divorce. When I asked her what she thought about Linda’s essay, she said, “Good,” and went right back to TV cartoons with its Lillputian-sized heroines. Still, I know the seed of self-empathy has been planted and not by me! Thanks again.” – Sharon Wood Wortman

“CC 20-20 is a delightful compilation of personal stories by Crone women – talented, poignant, heartwarming, funny, and sad. It takes brave women to open their hearts and souls, relive memories, admit defeat and yes, even brag of victories. To all those women who wrote a memoir I send you many hugs and much gratitude. Well done!” – Maggi Smith Hall

“I read the book in three days. The stories were at times humorous, at times heart-wrenching, but always enlightening. I learned so much about the varied cultures, beliefs, and lifestyles of these talented and wise women. I’m reading Crone Chronicles 20-20 again, more slowly this time. I want absorb and retain as much wisdom as I can. I wish I could meet all of the authors and personally congratulate them on a life well lived.” – Beverly Lerner
