The midlife years are only the beginning – a transformational edit for your very best life.

In 2019, Gail McNeill sold her cherished family home and moved to Portugal with just a few boxes of possessions. Soon after, the Covid pandemic enforced her isolation in a remote part of the world and sparked a cascade of introspection that led her to question every facet of her life, struggling to reconcile past choices with present reality. She started a journey of complete reinvention, from which she emerged physically, emotionally and spiritually transformed.

Now better known to her hundreds of thousands of followers as @fiftysister, Gail shares her story of midlife metamorphosis to guide you step by step along your own path to reinvention. Showing that it’s never too late to transform your life, The Midlife Edit will show you how to build a cocoon nourished by dietary, lifestyle and spiritual insights from which you can emerge transformed and re-energized, to make the absolute most of your middle years.

Gail shows you how, by prioritizing self-care for just one year, you can unlock the secrets of health span, building strength and confidence for life, nourishing your body and your mind, and allowing you to enter this unique new phase of your life not diminished, but empowered.

Let The Midlife Edit inspire you to invest in yourself, to imagine the life you truly desire – and to be seen, as you never have been before.

I've followed Gail through her transformation. I am amazed how open she is in every detail she shares. This book comes from real experiences the hard way at times. This book opens a door for women who are approaching a time in life that can be difficult to navigate. She helps you make this so much easier and exciting to reach 50 and over. I don't know any woman who wouldn't flourish physically or grow stronger and healthier from reading Gail's book.
