In a small neighborhood, perched atop a hill in Pittsburgh, thrives a world we think we have lost. The women of Troy Hill, now grand- and great-grandmothers, have lived here for the better part of the twentieth century. Most of the women were born here and married here; they raised their children here and buried their husbands (and some of their children) here; and their lives are a living testament to the old-fashioned values of service, friendship, faith, and sacrifice that younger, more restless and rushed generations have nearly forgotten. All over America, communities such as Troy Hill, made up largely of elderly women, are thriving. Clare Ansberry has discovered their secret to long and energetic lives. What Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie did for approaching death, Clare Ansberry's The Women of Troy Hill does for living full lives in the eighth and ninth decades.
