Good in a Crisis Summary

Good in a Crisis: A Memoir of Divorce, Dating, and Other Near-Death Experiences by Margaret Overton

My story begins with a divorce During the four years of physician Margaret Overton's acrimonious divorce, she dated widely and sometimes indiscriminately, determined to find her soulmate and live happily ever after. But then she discovered she had a brain aneurysm. She discovered it at a particularly awkward moment on a date with one of many Mr Wrongs. Overton, an anaesthetist, realised she had been so busy looking after the needs of others that she had forgotten to look after herself. So she set out on a course to take control of her future and finally become independent of men. Good in a Crisis is Overton's witty story of dealing with the most serious of life's problems: loss of life, loss of love and loss of innocence.

[A] smart and clear-eyed narrative of one woman's midlife divorce ... Overton managed to overcome her many trials as she imparts with humour and some high-handed poise * Publishers' Weekly *
[A] grimly hilarious journey ... brutally funny reading about midlife coming of age * Kirkus *
