Several women in my book found enduring, captivating love through signing up online and sifting through hundreds of possible prospects. You just aren’t going to encounter that many people in real life, even if you go out four nights a week (and who wants to do that - it’s expensive, tiring, and starts to feel like an extreme sport).

I rarely rate five stars. This has been the most helpful book I have read as I go through divorce. I have probably read 20+ books on divorce from finance to novels, and this one soothed my heart. It is good to read that there is life after divorce, and often, a better life. I really needed to hear that! I just wish this was a series with many volumes to follow. Come on Candace do some more!

I bought this for someone who had just gone through a divorce. She was really struggling to get through it. When I read the info on this book I thought it sounded like just the thing she needed. She called me after receiving it and said she absolutely loved it!! So glad I bought it!

a must read for every one who has ever loved their divorce

I found Ask Me About My Divorce to be helpful and enlightening. Divorce affects everyone differently and that is something everyone needs to know and understand. Those of us affected by divorce can learn and grow, not only from our divorce, but from others as well.

This book is full of compelling and hopeful stories - but they are almost all stories from the perspective of being in marriages that were deadening and where the woman feels a sense of freedom, whether the one left or the one leaving. These are NOT good stories for someone who has NOT wanted the divorce, who has been betrayed and shocked in the betrayal (with the exception of R M Hora's Sita's eyes.) None of these stories involve women who spend a year crying for what is lost, for the actual beloved husband, for the injury of lies, or betrayals. Yes there are lies and betrayals, and courageous handling of them in good stories, but not the betrayal of soul and heart. Each woman tells the story of a divorce that seems 'for the best' very quickly. Those women don't know what to say to the 'how tragic' or 'I'm sorry' of people, when that doesn't match the experience. But they are not such good stories for those who are caught in grief. When you are in that place, this book triggers lots of anger and sadness at the other side of comments, the ones that tell you to 'enjoy your freedom' 'you'll find someone else' 'it's time to stop crying' 'it's time to start dating' when you are still in shock and grieving. Those women will find themselves feeling once more berated for not being happy, for not moving on, for not getting over it fast enough. If you've really been dumped and betrayed, then this book will make you cry. A better book about the slow process of coming back to life after betrayal is Dominique Browning Around the House and In the Garden.

This incredibly gripping book is filled with a myriad of experiences from women of all walks of life. It is at times sad, at times humorous, equally captivating and filled with emotion. I think any woman--married, divorced, or merely seeking--can relate to these accounts and see a piece of herself amongst the brave ladies who have walked along the winding path of divorce, and came out on the other side, not completely unscathed, but all the better and stronger b/c of the journey and the lessons learned.
The individual stories drew me in immediately...and I found myself alongside the writers, feeling and yearning and building strength.
This book is about finding one's self, and while it centers on the experience of divorce as a means to self-discovery, it is a journey of rebirth in which we can all relate.
I give it an exuberant thumb's up, and intend to buy more copies for my friends who I know will feel as empowered after reading it as I did.

I found out about this book on Monday and ordered it next-day delivery from amazon.com, read it on Tuesday, and felt the need to promote it on Wednesday. The book is a collection of stories all written by women who have gone through divorce - and are now better for it.

Some of the writing is frank and confessional: "I came hard watching girl-on-girl sex." Some is lyrical: "Grief begins to rise like a tide then, seeking that deep groove to flow into." Painful humor abounds: "I put the lawyer through law school, he put me in the loony bin. We called it even and got divorced."

I see myself in every story in the book, even the one written by an immigrant German ex-polygamist who left not only her husband, but her sister wife. Our lives couldn't be more disparate, but we have something in common - recovering from emotionally abusive relationships and becoming strong women.

When Sy, the 58-year-old I was dating last, told me that I was just like every woman who goes through a divorce, and he could basically tell me what stages to expect next, I said incredulously, "Thanks for letting me know I'm typical." At the time, it didn't sit well with me. I was just starting find myself, my voice, and my identity. I didn't want to be like anybody else. But after reading the stories in this book, I realize that, yes, I am typical. Not necessarily a bad thing. Every woman who experiences divorce has her own spin to put on it. Stories may overlap, but no two are identical. Each voice is unique and valuable. Each variation adds to the whole complex composition of "divorce."

The editor, Candace Walsh (great first name! and she spells it correctly!), along with a few of the authors, will be doing readings at Skylight Books on May 21. My growing posse of LA Divorcees and I will be in attendance, book in hand. Eager to meet the women who are exposing the fact that divorce is neither a 4-letter word nor the end of the world. Typically, it's the beginning.
