I received the book yesterday and this morning read the first 3 chapters and found it a great tool for my clients.

The book was used for ladies who were in the process of divorce, and it was rated highly by them.

The first story I could completely relate to. I thought this was going to be such a good book. Then the next few stories were "hip-hooray" stories about dumpers. If you're the dumpee, it's very depressing. I can't even go on and read the rest of this book, because each page seems to affirm how great it is to leave someone else who just doesn't measure up to your standards. If you're the person who somehow just didn't measure up, it hurts.

After sarcastically summing up the last few stories I read by talking to the ceiling in my lonely apartment and saying, "I'm so glad I left you--my life is so good now," I threw this book in the garbage.

I picked up quite a few self-help books after my divorce. Thankfully, most were from the Library and I could return them at no expense. I felt so many emotions after my divorce. I wasn't sure what was normal. I just needed to try and make some sense out of it.
As a long time fan of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series, I pre-ordered this book from Amazon. It was exactly what I had been looking for. The personal accounts in the book provided a spectrum of experiences that allowed me to accept my ever-changing emotions. This book made me realize that there really were no "normal" feelings after a divorce. The stories provided different reasons couples may not succeed as well as different relationship outcomes between ex-spouses. The unknown is tough after a divorce, but this book provides a glimpse of the possibilities that will *eventually* come.
For me, this book was so much more valuable than all the other self-help books I picked up that focused on detailing the stages of loss. I didn't want to study my divorce; I just wanted to find some relief from the whole ordeal. This book provided that relief for me. I would recommend it to anyone struggling through the same situation.

Virtually every story is written from a wife's point of view. Chicken soup for a woman's soul would be a more accurate title.

I think this book will be a great comfort to those going through a difficult time in their lives. It will bring healing and humor, as well as a sense of "I can get through this" and "I'm not alone," which is critical when facing the emotional strain of going through a divorce.

Chicken Soup books are filled with stories about real people in real situations. Some stories are heartwarming, some heart-wrenching. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. I like the way they stir my emotions, and help me work through difficult times.

I contributed my own story to Divorce and Recovery. Although I don't feel that I have any better insight into dealing with divorce than anyone else who has gone through it. I was fortunate to get involved with a small group through my church that addressed bitterness and forgiveness. This helped me uncover the fact that I was carrying around a lot of bitterness from my divorce because I had not forgiven my ex. Thankfully, a way was provided for me to do just that, which is what my story in Divorce and Recovery is about. I hope the readers will see that they can forgive their ex-spouses. Forgiveness is not an easy road to travel, but carrying the burden of bitterness with you only makes your life's journey more difficult.

The dedication reads "To all the hearts that have been broken: may you find help and hope within this book - maybe even some laughter - to help you heal again."

There are so many issues addressed in this wonderfully insightful book. If you are dealing with divorce, get this for yourself. If you know someone who is dealing with a divorce, do them a favor by giving them this invaluable resource.

I found very tender and dear stories in this book that touch my very heart and soul. It was so reassuring to read others stories and then think that "I'm not the only one to feel this way, and there is hope at the end of this tunnel!" As long as I can feel that HOPE, I feel there is a chance for HAPPINESS. Thanks so much for sharing that LIGHT with my soul, it was pretty cloudy.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I was divorced 12 years ago and at the time wrote to the Chicken Soup People hoping to find the comfort that I knew would come from one of your books and was greatly disapointed to read that it was "in the works". Well 3 weeks ago I received an e-mail saying that there was now a book for the divorced. I ordered it right away and it came in 3 days. I sat down and read the 1st story and it was as though I had written it myself. She wrote my every feeling, about my pain and heartache, she seemed to know ME and had walked with me through the whole ordeal. Believe me, after 12 years I seemed to get the relief I was looking for and needed. I cried quite a bit that afternoon but it was a truly "good" cry. I read a few more stories and later in the evening went back and read the 1st story out loud so I could hear the words. I can't thank you enough and even though it took 12 years it was well worth it. I intend to get this book for anyone I hear is facing this time in their lives and pray they will find the comfort I have found. Thank you!!

My friendship with my first husband lasted for over fifty years. I am so pleased to pay tribute to that long relationship in my story, When He Looked Like James Dean, in this new book. I urge those who divorce not to allow bitterness to get in the way of getting on with their lives, nor to let differences cloud the memory of the attraction that drew them together in the first place. The key word in this book's title is "recovery." It's not an easy task, but those who get past the first trying days of the divorce often find that they may face opportunity in a way they never had imagined.
