In keeping with the bestselling When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, and Gail Sheehy’s New Passages, Jubilee Time celebrates the freedom, opportunities, and power of older women, who are too often maligned in our youth-obsessed culture. Based on the Jubilee passage in Leviticus–"You shall hallow the fiftieth year.
