Empowering, Encouraging, Essential Feb 11, 2007
This book should be the FIRST book one reads when faced with the devastation of a husband leaving and cheating. It has been my source of encouragment, truth and inspiration. They identify each and every emotion that you experience and confirm that you are are NOT alone in what you are going through. They give you practical, encouraging advice/suggestions on how to work through such a painful, disappointing, humiliating experience. I look forward to reading it every day and I don't know what I'm going to do when I'm finished. I know, HEAL and press on! This book is essential in healing through the hurt and pain, the devastation and upheavel of your husband leaving/cheating and divorce!
A great resource and a blessing Nov 10, 2006
This book was an excellent resource for me at a very critical time. I have already loaned it out to another friend facing the same situation. I would recommend it to any woman who is facing the unexpected upheaval of divorce or separation. Read it slowly and digest the truths these authors share with women who are hurting but seeking God's help in this trying time.
A Healing Balm Sep 6, 2006
In my darkest hour and most crippling pain this book was like a comforting hug. These women are putting their arms around you letting you know that they understand and that you are not alone; because they've been where you are and SURVIVED.
They are unbelievably candid about their hurts & hopes for the future - while the whole time leading you to the One who is the greatest healer.
Anyone who is suffering from a seperation or divorce should have this book - you deserve it...
If you've been married for 25+ years this is THE BOOK May 23, 2006
This is the best book I've read so far since my husband left. I was married for over 30 years. I haven't read all of the books available on this subject, but this is the BEST one I've read. In fact, I'm reading it a second time. All of my feelings of betrayal, hurt, anger, shock, etc. are covered by two women who have been there, done that. So darn nice to not feel so alone in pain. Face it, if you haven't lived it you can't know how it feels. These women know.
Best book out there for an unwanted divorce Jul 28, 2005
When He Leaves was my lifesaver when I went through my divorce. My husband 'surprised' me with the news he wanted a divorce, and I was devestated. I used many sources for support, but this book was one of the best. The style it is written in is very down to earth and easy to follow, but it so on the mark with the feelings it describes. The book really goes through the different stages well, and helps the reader identify her emotional state and how to deal with it. I would highly recommend this book for women who dreamed of ever after, and had their husbands ruin that. It was my divorce 'bible'.
