gary chapman puts it in perspective Feb 18, 2008
Another great book by Gary Chapman. He explains the different issues of separation and how they apply bibically. Most helpful to those with hope for reconciliation in marriage.
Awesome! Jan 29, 2008
This book is written for both the person that left and the one that was left. My husband left me out of the blue and I was devastated. I have read many books since he left and this is by far the best! I highlighted and made notes and am sending a copy to my husband. Maybe he reads it and it stirs something in his heart and maybe he doesn't but reading this book definitely helped in my healing process!
One of my favorite quotes was "separation may be the valley of restoration, and the pain you feel may be the labor pains that will give rebirth to your marriage." He does not suggest that "the road to reconciliation is easy, but rather it is right and that the results are worth the effort."
This book is written from a Christian perspective so it encourages reconciliation. If your spouse has left and you hope to reconcile, I highly recommend reading this book!
Wonderful, appropriate, practical resource Aug 28, 2007
For those of us who have found ourselves separated from our spouse it is a terrible, frustrating, depressing and confusing time. We're married -- but we're not. We're single -- but we're married. We have a spouse -- but not a husband/wife. We can't be a family -- but we can't be a single. And a separation can only go in one of two ways -- reconciliation or divorce. Chapman's book is a terrificly easy and incredibly appropriate read. Having surely counseled dozens of separated couples, he touches on every aspect involved, for both parties, regardless of the offense or the offender, emotions or intentions. For the Christian, it offers great insight in to what God expects of us and how we need to be conducting our lives in this difficult time. I read it, loved it, and am trying to apply the principles he relates as best as I can. I gave it to my wife who I hope will find it as useful and practical as I did. Time will tell. But if it doesn't work, it won't be because I didn't do everything I could do, and this book has helped point me in the right direction. If you are separated and have even the slimmest hope for reconciliation -- BUY THIS BOOK! You won't regret it.

This booked helped me at a time when nothing else could. It helped me to see things more cleary and gave me direction. It is a very useful book to help you get your life on track and understand what is happening and why. I read the book over and over when I've had a bad day and it helps to bring understanding and ways to overcome those depressing things you guy through in a divorce or seperatoin.
