Interview With Carol Ross Joynt on Reinventing a Life

Widow talks about recovery from financial ruin

Q. Does Spencer want you to get married? Not for him, for you?

A. For him, too! He says, why, oh why can't you find someone who occupies your time, and you can talk to him instead of me?

Q. You're optimistic, after all this. You're essentially upbeat.

A. If we went about being skeptical about every bloody thing, where is the joy in life? I need to survive. It's in my DNA. I need to move forward, to a place where people believe in me. I need to keep gaining ground.

Jacquelyn Mitchard, the best-selling author of 20 books, lives near Madison, Wis., with her family. Her next novel, Second Nature: A Love Story, will be published in September. She recently wrote about things she'll never wear again now that she's over 50.
