Description


For many mothers, a child's senior year brings about a serious look back on the past eighteen. Every eventfrom Halloween to Mother's Daybecomes The Last Time.
Toni Piccinini knows exactly what that's like, and in "The Goodbye Year," she offers the loving support every soon-to-be Empty Nester needs. Think of Toni as your bossy-but-loving Italian auntie, with modern sensibilities and a packed pantry. With the wisdom she's acquired from saying goodbye three times to her own children, she reassuringly holds your hand while encouraging you through the insanity of the college application process, the rejections and the acceptances, and the teary dorm drop-offs. Even better, she reminds every mother that the best is yet to comefreedom, creativity, flexibility, and the Me Years.
