Songs of My Life . . . Slightly Out of Tune speaks to a generation of women and men over the age of 40 who are dealing with life’s challenges, both big and small. Susan Dintino writes about love, marriage, family, aging, health scares, parenting, and staying relevant and excited about what life has to offer. Her message is one of hope, and her conclusion is that we’re all trying to do our best, and it’s better if we can do so with a smile. Susan offers gentle advice, the kind that comes from a lifetime of experience: What should you do if your spouse loves to give you the silent treatment? How do you conquer your own fears in order to be “cool enough” to your kids during a European school trip? How do you interact with a terminally ill sibling and deal with the regrets of not spending enough time with each other? How can you make sure that you’re a good mate, parent, and person?
This book shows you that life is like a song. You learn the words, but that’s not the end, because the tune can change at any time. Susan shares her journey in such a way that you’ll smile, tear up, wince, and nod your head in time to her song, because all of us are the same: We’re slightly out of tune, too.
