May 2015 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

In Your Prime acts as a witty and opinionated wake-up call for women who are rapidly approaching the dreaded 40 or have long sailed on past. You know some things, you don't know others, you may not have the money to have that London Salon haircut or the eyewateringly expensive dental treatment but there is lots that can be done to steady the Buffs and allow you to enjoy your “Prime”. As India Knight fans will know from her books Thrift and The Shops she is excellent at providing and sharing information and advice. So read with pen to hand noting down the websites and addresses of recommended sources for everything from clothing to very personal necessities for bedroom enjoyment.~ Sue Baker

In Your Prime Older, Wiser, Happier Synopsis

Part guide, part memoir, part manual, in In Your Prime India Knight seeks to provide proper, weighty answers to the questions women are asking themselves now. Covering a wide range of subjects from clothes and cosmetics, being a parent to older children, having older parents and what that entails, and of course, the menopause, In Your Prime is the definitive, much-needed guide to approaching middle age with confidence and panache. 

The Good Book Guide Review

Journalist and author of three bestselling novels, India Knight writes a regular column in the Sunday Times, in which she voices her pretty forceful opinions on aspects of life today. In this book, her focus is on ageing – and specifically women ageing – deciding that, as she approaches fifty, life is generally better and she is happier than at times in her youth. In chapter headings like ‘Beauty and Maintenance’, ‘Family Relationships’, ‘Ailing Parents’, and ‘Living Well’, she dispenses a mixture of anecdote and advice, mostly based on experience and often amusingly astute, in an entertaining combination of memoir and ‘self-help’ book.
