Golden Grace: Embracing the Richness of Our Later Years

Golden Grace reminds us that our later years may be some of the best of our lives. It doesn’t take a lot of money or other possessions to enjoy your later years to the fullest. Antonia presents, with a most gentle yet powerful voice, ways to make the most of your senior years. The simple message of Golden Grace is about having an attitude, and actions supportive of that attitude, that bring forth the joy and fulfillment of our elder years.

In This Moment: Making the Most of Your Senior Years

In This Moment celebrates the latter part of our lives with humor, candidness, and honesty. Author Antonia Albany offers her personal experiences of aging well through gratitude, spirituality, having fun, and making the most of every situation. She also gently touches on challenging topics like imperfection, letting go and death. Describing her journey with aging, Albany shares her discoveries and revelations about how to make our senior years more rewarding and enjoyable.


The Other Side of the Hill: Celebrating Our Later Years

“The other side of the hill” doesn’t have to be a steady decline from a previously fun and vibrant life! In this engaging, honest and vulnerable book, Antonia Albany discusses stretching fun, personal growth, and spiritual connection into your later years. It’s not about how much money you have, where you live or whether you’re in a relationship. It’s about cultivating a positive attitude and approach to life. Antonia shares her successes and failures, along with suggestions for making the most of life no matter how old you are.
