About the Book:
When the world was derailed by Covid-19, the Lemonade Generation was launched as adult children came home with laptops, dirty laundry and one-way plane tickets, seeking stability to ride out the cyclone of uncertainty. In Good Work, Grit & Gratitude, Adrian Dubow and Laura Koffsky share how they learned to find the sweetness in this very sour time. Cooking excessive amounts of food, hoarding toilet paper, and even learning to sit quietly on the sidelines of an Ironman competition, they transformed into true IronMoms, developing deeper relationships with their children along with a newfound understanding of the power of community. In this honest, humorous, and profound memoir, they share how they learned to mask up, shut up, listen, laugh, let go and let the next generation lead, grateful to be along for the ride in the passenger’s seat, giving directions—when asked!
