With the same feelings and emotions intact -- in contrast: Heavily peppered and strategically placed throughout this riveting bio are the WHY's and HOW-TO's pertaining to the author's life events as they occur, bringing to light the subtle, silent and insideous effects of codependency festering in nearly every family and relationship.
I read this book first before I read the author's first book, The Road Back To Me. I loved this book also! I recommend this book to everyone! I have never been married but have been in a long-term relationship. I think we all can relate to this story. It is enjoyable to read, another book I didn't want to put down. The author puts into words her experiences and feelings so creatively that you just become so absorbed with her story. It evokes your emotions and gets you thinking about your own life experiences!
From the Author
My Road Beyond The Codependent Divorce begins immediately where The Road Back To Me ends. I have written the story in two parts because I believe a great reason for why we Adult Children fall into dysfunctional relationships is because we have not been taught to appreciate our emotional, spiritual Se;f; the Self we were supposed to learn to honor in childhood, and did not because we were born to beings who instead programmed us to worry about what they and others thought about us. This books speaks to the terrifying and crippling emotional states we face when we have decided to finally stand up for our selves and assert boundaries with those who have been accustomed to treating us so poorly. I offer my story up to you, the readers in the hopes that you are able to walk away with some sort of blueprint you can adopt to help you move beyond the circumstances that have you denying the Self for the sake of others. When I ended my codependent marriage, my life literally turned inside out and upside down. Like stepping off a cliff and into an unknown abyss, everything was unfamiliar. Hold onto your seats dear one, because my story ends magically! Once I learned the lessons I needed to help me hold onto myself, I also learned to make necessary mental and emotional shifts within, that allowed me to attract an amazing partner. I do not want to spoil the ending. But I am sure you will enjoy it.

If you feel unheard, invisible, not worthy, or good enough, you NEED to read this book!!! The answers and tools she provides are literally priceless! I AM forever grateful for her work. Her work NEEDS to be available worldwide! There are so many of us on this planet that learned to smile on cue, tell others "I'm fine" all the while we are dying on the inside! It's not our fault, it's our childhood programming! Thank you Lisa for all that you do!
Despite having all the trappings of life, Lisa describes the challenges she had as she tried to mend her marriage and relationship. But she also takes us on the deep and sometimes painful emotional journey of deep healing, self-redemption and, finally, forgiveness. She also helps us understand and 'get' how debilitating and trapped we would feel if we didn't try to get past the co-dependent issues and dramas of our lives.
This is a powerful book. Depending on where you are at in your own journey, get ready to find your box of tissues and cry for her pain - and possibly your own pain - as she identifies, realizes, redefines and then lifts us up with her as she finds her ultimate joy and spiritual center.
Interspersed in the story of her life, Lisa fully helps us understand how challenging it is to 'find your voice,' and what it took for her to be true to herself. In all of that, she helped me understand what I had done well and could do better in my own life.
I highly recommend Lisa's book to all who wish to heal, live in joy and find unconditional love - for themselves and all the people they touch.
Lisa, thank you for writing your book. It moved me deeply.
