Adrienne's journey takes the reader from the discovery of passion and ecstasy in her twenties during the late sixties, to her first broken heart, from a her divorce, to her first dating experiences on line in her fifties, and so much more, until a reconciliation with the past and her future life end the collection on a positive and hopeful note. On Thin Ice is a novella of about 60,000 words in twelve interconnected short stories about Adrienne, an immigrant, and her friends. This book is a fictional journey of a life of relationships and daring moves--walking on thin ice--and may inspire baby boomers in their quest for meaning in their lives where marriage Till Death Do Us Part is not so common anymore. Readers of Adrienne’s generation, with higher expectations for longevity and hedonistic pleasures than any generation before, will be entertained and moved by Adrienne‘s adventures in Europe and in western Canada and be uplifted by its optimistic message.
