I bought this book after I was already divorced, but still found it to be immensely helpful, as my divorce was not wanted by me. I have read it through 2 or 3 times. I cried alot the first time I read it. I return to it a couple times a month and read a chapter or two. I find it very comforting. In my opinion, the authors did an amazing job of balancing grace and truth, which is no easy task. If you are separated, going through a divorce, or already divorced, I can't recommend this book highly enough. I think the principles in it, in many ways, apply to all relationships, romantic or not. It's also helped me in my relationship with an out of control teenage daughter.
I have never gone through a divorce, my spouse has twice. I had no idea what to expect and after reading this book, it helped me find peace and clarity. To quit focusing on losing her and to focus on gaining a new life. She may or may not come back, we are separated right now but I am empowered to move forward and live again either way.
This has been the book that saved my sanity! I’m am so grateful that I stumbled upon this book early in my divorce process. It literally helped me switch from panic to peace. I was able to put emotion aside and work through the lessons to see reality, which gave me clarity and helped me process what I was going through. If you are even thinking about divorce, read this book.
Totally hit home for me throughout. It is written from the perspective of the person being left and caught by surprise. The spiral staircase to describe the stages of grief is a perfect analogy and was delivered just when I needed it.
5.0 out of 5 starsNo matter what phase your in this book helps

If your looking for a book to stop your divorce this is not it. My anxiety was at an all time high I even got fired from my job due to it. No matter what I tried books, individual therapy, one sided marriage counseling, online courses. I thought I could save my marriage single handily and change my wife's mind, Not a chance!!!!! This book took me down roads I didn't want to go down, however I needed to. Simple yet packed with ideas and suggestions that make even ending marriage seem reachable. If your stuck wondering what to do next buy this book I read mine through kindle unlimited and it has saved my sanity and I think I am ok no matter which way my divorce goes.
