I wrote this book because I felt there were a lot of other women who, in their later years, find that life has not turned out the way that they would have liked.

Being unhappy in your marriage is one thing; doing something about it is quite another. In her new book, “Sunshine After Rain: One Woman’s Journey to a Better Life”, author J.R. Lucy leads readers through her own experiences with divorce, abuse and unhappiness and proves that it is never too late to find the life you deserve.
“Sunshine After Rain” is a true account of the challenges Lucy has faced and how she has strived to overcome them, even as a woman in her golden years. After surviving mental and physical abuse from her parents, her first divorce and becoming financially unstable, Lucy went on to marry for the second time. Twenty-five years later she discovered he was not someone she could picture herself spending the rest of her life with and decided to divorce him, even if it meant being put under great financial strain.
After moving back in with her mother, she found herself faced with another set of challenges: menopause, online dating and depression. When Lucy sought the help of a psychiatrist, her counseling inspired her to fight for her own happiness.
“I wrote this book because I felt there were a lot of other women who, in their later years, find that life has not turned out the way that they would have liked,” said Lucy, “I spent two years saving money in my Running Away account, left my husband a month after turning 60 and nine years later, I am a very happy senior woman.”
Lucy’s book is an inspirational story that will leave readers feeling empowered to take control of their lives and their happiness, no matter their age, financial state or position in life.
