Abigail, you are not the only woman in the world who is afraid of this age when everything is dropped from us, but look where it has brought you: to be dependent on the love of youth that Mikey injects you with, to sleep with him in a nursing home, to take a nude photo on the bus, to sleep in the same bed with your psychologist, and what is the next craze? "I'm not afraid of turning 50. I'm afraid I won't be able to get excited anymore." What is going on with Abigail Shafer-Samara? oh Menopause washes her away; Mikey, the lover who is also her mythical ex, is no longer exactly hers; The children soon leave the house; The hormones leave the body; As she designs other people's homes, her life falls apart. And if all this isn't enough - she accepts an offer from a reality show to live in a bus in a kibbutz in the Jordan Valley, not before admitting herself to a luxury assisted living facility, where she breaks all the rules. A hurricane of emotions overwhelms the wonderful heroine created by Anat Lev-Adler and throws her through the roof of her well-kept house into deceptive spaces where an adolescent female body still insists on fluttering with passion, and into realms where traditional roles of mother and wife do not impose themselves on her. There, farthest from her shaky bourgeois everyday life, she has the opportunity to confront lies and brokenness and decide how she continues towards what she thinks is "the rest of life". After selling more than 50,000 copies of the novel Love Writes and Erases, in which she plunged into a mid-life crisis, Anat Lev-Adler returns with the psychological novel A Woman in a Season of Transition. Compassionately, courageously, in beautiful Hebrew, mixed with outbursts of unbridled humor, she confronts her heroine with the cruel puberty and with the cruel youthful fantasy of her, taking her to the edge and winking at the readers as if sweetening a secret: this is how we are, we want everything, tired of everything, smart and horrifyingly sober , sexy, touching, afraid of getting old and funny to no end. Anat Lev-Adler is a veteran editor at Yediot Ahronoth, married, mother of two adult children and lives in Tel Aviv.
