"Halfway There: Lessons at Midlife is a collection of stories that are meant to help readers make sense of their own lives - whether they're at the midpoint or not."

From an early age, Elizabeth C. Haynes faced hardships: abuse and trauma, tumultuous relationships, frustrating career shifts, and-when she reached her mid-thirties-chronic illness. As she approached middle age and began to examine her life's many ups and downs, she discovered that while the circumstances are individual, the emotions they carry are collective.

In Halfway There: Lessons at Midlife, Elizabeth shares some of her most personal stories (and the lessons she's learned) to help readers feel more empowered to embrace their own journeys. She writes with poignance, care, and a dash of humor about the many challenges humans face, such as: adversity and loss, frustrating career shifts, lack of purpose, childhood trauma, the pressure to fit in, conflicting beliefs, and chronic health issues. Her hope is for readers to come away with a better understanding of what it means to be human and how to grow older with grace.

Review quote

"Halfway There: Lessons at Midlife is more than one woman's struggle to reconcile her life. It's a blueprint for how to revamp and revise perspective and objective for maximum results, and should be on the reading list of any self-help reader facing middle age." - Midwest Book Review

"A memoir of positivity that is bound to encourage anyone to live life one day at a time, it's a better alternative to self-help books that give false hope." - V. Dublado, Readers' Favorite

"While autobiography lies at the heart of these explorations, so does an assessment of revised strategies at midlife. This will particularly interest self-help readers who look to change their own self-assessments about how to better live the remaining years of life." - Midwest Book Review

"​​Her memoir is so uplifting and will motivate many women who are facing a crossroads in their lives to believe in themselves and continue to strive towards their goals. It's never too late to get back on track and achieve anything you want." - L. Jones, Readers' Favorite
