Quilt on Fire: Friendship, Dating, Sex and Love (Hardback)Christie Watson (author)
Exploring notions of love, health and acceptance, the nurse and author of The Courage to Care takes a rueful look at mid-life and all the messiness, madness and magic that go with it.
A frank, funny and inspiring new memoir from Christie Watson about the search for meaning in mid-life.
Quilt on Fire reframes mid-life with openness and honesty, and celebrates the messy magic of being a single woman in your forties.
Christie has been searching for the meaning of love since her early twenties: when the bright glow of emotion she experienced with her boyfriend turned out to be her bedroom quilt that had caught fire. Now, at the age of 44, following what she thought was a spectacular breakdown (and that turned out to be the peri-menopause), she asks the question: what does love mean now? Christie takes us on a very funny, sometimes shocking and touchingly poignant journey: through peri-menopause and single parenting, via a world pandemic, to a place of change and acceptance that her younger self would never have believed...
