PUSHING UPWARD strikes a chord with a broad audience. For the elderly it confirms their usefulness, reminding us of their importance and wisdom. For people in their thirties, forties, and fifties, Pushing Upward becomes a reminder and a catalyst for processing their young adult experiences. For teens and twenty-year olds who strive for independence, trying to digest their lives at full throttle, battling to maintain a sense of peace in the midst of mayhem, Pushing Upward becomes a powerful mirror.
The themes in Pushing Upward capture the current zeitgeist central to the biggest conversations women are having today: Self-esteem, rape, bulimia, the need for mentoring, divine intervention, and the desire to pursue a fulfilling life in spite of an unfortunate past.
