Publisher's Summary

After nine years of marriage, Toyin M. Falusi, MD, a specialist in infectious diseases, found herself divorced and raising two young children. It was a trying, stressful time, but rather than accept the hackneyed stereotype of the miserable and overwrought single mom, Falusi chose to embrace her new existence.

Twelve years later, she’s still leading a happy, successful life. In The Decade After: Surviving Thriving After Divorce, she shares what she’s learned along the way.

While this is not a self-help manual, much inside will resonate with recently divorced women. It is also not exactly an advice book, although Falusi does offer tips and tactics to help you adjust to life after marriage breakdown and separation. Rather, this is an informal, often funny conversation, with Falusi expounding on such topics as raising well-adjusted kids, working with - not against - your ex-spouse, building a support system, and taking care of yourself.

Life does not end after divorce, nor does it have to plunge into stress, loneliness, and despair. Take it from Falusi - 12 years later, she’s still going strong. While she remains willing to entertain the possibility of a new serious relationship, she’s quite happy as she is - self-reliant, successful, and fulfilled!

#getbetternotbitter #thrivingafterdivorce This book empowers women of all ages to celebrate their awesomeness and to grow daily.

A Must-Read for Anyone in Transition

Dr. Falusi is generous and unguarded as she shares with readers how she navigated through the aftermath of her divorce while maintaining a vision of raising successful and balanced daughters. The book is well written, edited and flows compassionately as she presents stories that anyone can relate to and apply to their own life’s journey. Highlighting biblical scriptures and principles of habit change as foundations for practical application, the author does a wonderful job of offering readers wisdom they can readily put into practice. I enjoyed the encouragement and grace I gleaned from this book so much, I have already forwarded the audiobook to two other friends. I truly believe anyone going through a time of struggle or transition could benefit from reading this gem of a book.

This book is so liberating and refreshing!

I loved the candid way she shared her story, it was very relatable and a lot about self care and thriving after a major life transition like divorce. Thank you for sharing your sacred spaces with the world, the world is a better place for it!
