The Bea & Lily book series is about two middle-aged women, muddling through some of their midlife struggles and sharing their triumphs. Written with adults in mind but from a simple, child-like point of view, the Bea & Lily series is thought-provoking, endearing, sometimes funny, relatable, and useful in today’s world of internet rants, self-help resources, and miles of “you should do this (more) to be better” advice. Bea and Lily help each other through topics and situations that come to us all, sooner or later, and help each other and the reader reframe their circumstances so their perspectives can stay balanced. Which is something we all need.
