Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Former Miss Universe Torres, with a big assist from sister Jinny (a "mental health counselor with several degrees"), delivers a well-written guide to post-divorce recovery; the famous ex of singer Marc Anthony isn't remarkably original in her debut, but she is interesting and helpful. Jinny features prominently, frequently interjecting advice and explanation alongside Torres's narrative; as a team, their information is direct, practical and easy to follow. Fans of Marc Anthony won't find any dish here; Torres mentions him infrequently and only as "my ex-husband." Despite predictable content-reviewing the stages of grief, learning to forgive, accept and understand yourself-her sincere feeling and camaraderie will make readers feel warm and welcome (even if she occasionally goes a bit too far, as in 15 pages of letters from her "friends" about their own break-ups).

Review

“People get divorced, and one family hates the other and talks badly about them. I want absolutely none of that…It didn’t work out, move on…Just because things don’t happen the way you planned, the world hasn’t ended. It’s really the beginning of a wonderful new adventure.”
—Dayanara Torres, in People

I could not put it down! We as women have struggles but to for Dyanara to write about it was great .. I was happy to read that she had so much support and love from her family.

Jeannette Torres-Alvarez loved her notes! BALANCE!!!

Dayanara is a friend of mine and if I hated this book there would have been no review.

If you're looking for a tell all about Dayanara's marriage to Marc Anthony this book will be a disappointment. If you're looking for a "tell-something" you are in luck.

I don't know how but at a remarkably young age the sisters Torres (Jinny is the co-author) have found their voices. Although it appears to be geared to the divorced or divorcing woman, Married To Me is a wonderful guide for married women too.

There is more than one gentle reminder that our children are only half "ours". Married, divorced, single or looking Dayanara and Jeannette are women worth listening to. By honoring our children's fathers we honor our children.

Do not miss the chapter on Rebuilding. A smart woman begins every day fresh.

It's a charming and uplifting book with small glimpses into a very exciting life led by two insightful and glamorous women (who are surprisingly just like us).

I am very happy to see that she was only 17 when she started her career. Entered to another world by winning the Mss Universe and married Marc. Is good to see that yes, she is very beautiful, have done so much and have achieved many things but, yet she doesn't live Queen's/perfect life. I think that this book is a wake up call to all these woman who think that life is perfect or like we will say in Spanish "No todo es color de rosa."
In any event, the book is worth to invest the time, money and energy.....! Well done Dayanarra.

I bought this book because Yari is a well-known celebrity in the Philippines back in the 90's. I was just curious.... like I also bought Tori Spelling's book...
However, I found this book really INSPIRING. How I wish I had this book while I was going through my divorce. I have collections of books about divorce, moving on, rebuilding from well known Psychologists and recommendations from my therapist. But this is the first and only book that I will keep reading until I can rediscover myself again. Good job Yari! You are now my idol and inspiration.

I really enjoyed this book. I think that it is a very helpful book not only for people who are divorce, but also for women in general. We all have been through break ups and heartaches. This book inspires you to take care of the most important person in your life; yourself. It is an easy to read book that provides steps to overcome your divorce, but at the same time is also inspirational and motivational.

I usually do not write reviews. I don't have the time. But I felt a moral obligation to do this one.
This is one of the best books I have ever read and believe me, I have read plenty of them. This book has tons of helpful information. Dayanara and her sister, who is a real professional in the field,(because you can tell she knows what she is talking about) have written a book that is informative and easier to read. A book that after finishing it, will leave you with a sense of peace and empowerment. I have been divorce for 3 years and I wish I had bought this book earlier. It would had saved me lots of money. I keep this one on top of my nightstand, so I can always refer to it.

Thank you guys for writing it. It has truly helped me tremendously.

If you can only afford one book on the topic, trust me, this is the one you would not feel sorry for purchasing. It is worth every penny.

I was not expecting such a well-written book. I am recently divorced and was heartbroken and looking for a book to help me with my healing. I have received professional counseling, but this book was EXACTLY what my heart and soul needed- from insightful girlfriends who really seem to care about their sisters out there. This is really a "how to" guide on surviving divorce in a positive manner while dealing with the tough feelings that often accompany this tumultuous life change (especially if you have children.) Thank you, Yari and Ginny... your book really should be on a bestseller list, in my opinion. Thank you for showing me that we can become BETTER women, mothers, friends and spouses after divorce.
