"Ask Me About My Divorce: Women Open Up About Moving On, edited by Mothering's Features Editor, Candace Walsh, is a collection of dynamic, reflective, well-written essays that deftly illuminate the transformative potential of loss. These are stories of brave women, including Mothering contributor Amé Solomon and former Managing Editor Rozella Kennedy, who used devastating circumstances to successfully reinvent their lives. If you've checked into the Heartbreak Hotel, let this inspiring book encourage you to take the next healing step."
"This collection of 29 essays, all written by women for women, aims to show that getting divorced does not equal failure and can be the start of a new, positive life Most divorce-themed books focus on legal or financial aspects or target a specific age group; this one allows women to recount their experiences as a theraputic exercise for themselves and other divorcées.
"A divorce is a shameful thing, or so we tend to think, says Candace Walsh, editor of the essay collection Ask Me About My Divorce: Women Open Up About Moving On. But rather than see divorce as something ignoble or embarrassing, Walsh says, we ought to put a failed marriage in its place: It was something that worked once but doesn't anymore. Viewed that way, a divorce is a healthy way to reclaim the rest of your life.
