“I loved the tone of this honest, thoughtful memoir: heartbreaking and real, without the slightest hint of self-pity.”
—ELIZABETH GILBERT, AUTHOR OF EAT, PRAY, LOVE AND COMMITTED
“Stacy Morrison’s memoir is as sweet as it is sad, both honest as an anvil and full of genuine hope. Morrison’s buoyant prose and hard-earned wisdom make the mess and roar of love, however difficult, all seem worthwhile.”
—Karen Karbo, author of The Stuff of Life: A Daughter’s Memoir
“I loved it. Raw, wonderful, honest, brash, truth-telling—Falling Apart in One Piece is a story about learning to let go and come to terms with the journey of life. It is a book for anyone whose life has just taken an unexpected turn and who needs to be reminded that not only can they be happy again, but that the human spirit is capable of great resilience.” —Lee Woodruff, author of Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress
