This book begins with the diary of a young woman who journeys through the hardships of life and unwanted changes brought about by divorce. It offers a priceless insight for people considering divorce, as well as those going through divorce, as they read this chronological diary which illustrates the process and resolution of emotions entangled in divorce. The reader is allowed to identify not only with the woman who wrote the diary, but also to her children, her friends and the other people who entered into her life during this one year period.
Following the diary is a self-help section. The beauty of this section is that it offers suggestions that allow the reader to help herself/himself get through divorce. What makes this book unique from other self-help books is that when the reader gets to this section, she has already connected with the author and is more open to the suggestions there because he can identify with someone who has struggled with the same issues and survived. The author is not a prophet telling people how to live, but a warrior who has found a way through this crisis to a happier life. This warrior is willing to put herself out there to help other people by sharing the tricks of trade thereby making the battle easier for them to get through.
The final section is for friends of someone who is in the throngs of divorce. Our society, though filled with compassion for people who are hurting, often lacks the tools to help. I heard so many times, "I wanted to help you, but I just didn''t know what to do." Hence this section was born.
The book begins and ends with a poem.
This intriguing book will be a blessing to anyone who reads it. It is destined to help many.
