Publisher's Summary

When Hollywood screenwriter Chris Easterly's wife came clean about her affair, his mind went blank. And so began the long, unimaginably difficult reconstruction of his life after marriage. Relentlessly honest and profoundly moving, 'Falling Forward' explores the emotional journey of one man's divorce, from his wife's affair to the seemingly bottomless grief that followed to his eventual healing and the realization that he would survive.

Rose Colored Glass View

I was interested in reading this book to learn a man's point of view of divorce. It was not what I expected. While there was a great deal of emotional conflict and musings on faith, a couple of things stood out to me. He wanted a wife not a buddy. Many of the most successful relationships involve being friends who can talk to one another. The second thing that stood out is the comment that he couldn't understand why she had the affair. Affairs tend to happen because something is missing in the relationship. Love alone is not always enough. While he wanted to attend couple's counseling and she reluctantly went, he never gave her what she really wanted. She did tell him the reason why and I don't think he really understood it. She wanted to be desired. A good sex therapist would've helped. This was a rather naive view of marriage and divorce. The narration was beautiful.

One man's story

Reflection and reading were well done. A good story of a difficult time. Transparent in the telling.
