It does not contain psychological information, and is not intended as a self-help therapy book on its own. However, it is a very good companion to divorce self-help books that are intended for older people. I recommend "On Your Own Again" by Anderson and MacSkimming as a good companion guide to coping with divorce and moving through the stages of reforming your life.
My only complaint is that I didn't find the intro section on grieving to be very helpful, because it is based on an outdated model of grief theory and is not well explained.
For me, the healing came as my true friends acknowledged what I was going through, and were willing to do things a different way so as to incorporate my new world, not keep me tied to their old one. Divorce is not easy for anyone. We do the best we can for our families, but most especially for ourselves. I found friendship in each of these stories, one that could relate and support and inspire me to keep moving through the grief and embrace the change I was experiencing. I've learned to filter out the "takers" in my life, and am working on surrounding myself with positive, accepting people, who love me and take the time to truly understand and accept my ever-changing world.
I love the new "face" of the younger, fabulous divorced woman that this book exemplifies, not only for women who are under 30, but for all women, that divorce is no longer a failure in life and a great reminder that better things lie ahead. It is ok to be divorced, and you can remain a healthy, vibrant lady everafter!
