Description: A gently written, yet daring, reflection on aging, in which the eighty-seven-year-old author considers the sources of strength and dignity that truly allow people to grow old gracefully, and to retain a joy for life.

"A standard complaint about writings on old age is that they are either too bright and determinedly cheerful, or that they are too dark and gloomy. My hope in this book is to bring the two extremes together without denying either one, for both are valid". -- from "Let Evening Come"

Mary C. Morrison writes about the process of aging with humor and sensitivity. She does not ignore the difficulties that old age brings, but instead illustrates the benefits of the peace, solitude, and relaxation that come with it. She shows how the gradual movement away from the center of work, family, and community can be a blessing in disguise and how one can feel renewed, instead of made powerless, by old age.

Written from the Quaker view of life, "Let Evening Come" helps the reader recognized that although aging requires great bravery, the source for that gallantry is found in the human spirit. Perfect as a gift to oneself or others, this enlightening and inspirational book chronicles the observations of a fascinating who has lived a full life and who has learned how to enjoy old age.
