I found that a lot of what was talked about before I started reading I was already doing. So it was reassuring I was headed the right direction. It answered a lot of questions on how to handle difficult emotions. As a devout Catholic convert I feel this was a great reference for Catholic beliefs in layman's terms and wished I had read or been taught things talked about in this book as I was entering the church and definitely before marriage.
I've purchased this book for several friends and family members who have gone through a bitter divorce. Some are devout Catholics and some are not, but everyone I have given this to has said its a life saver and have passed it on to other friends that are divorced or going through a divorce. Lisa I am not married, but I was a former family law attorney who gave this book out as a spiritual guide. Lisa Duffy is a blogger on Catholic Institute and is an amazing writer and truly gifted. I would highly recommend this book as a LIFE SAVER to anyone going through a divorce or even those who have been divorced for years or decades. It will transform your view on life.
This book is comprehensive and a great start for Catholics who aren't already familiar with the annulment process. If you are well-acquainted with an advocate already, and have pastoral support or good counseling, you probably don't need this book
As a divorced catholic we need special help. I found this book helpful. I have been searching for a catholic divorce group and very hard to find. I found a website for divorced . They had the info on this book there. I was so happy about it.
Although, I have not finished the book, I have already discovered a lot of information. I was not raised Catholic, but I have a friend who was. She is also divorced and did not have a lot of answers for her own questions or mine. This is helping.
