    HIGHLY recommended!

    I loved this memoir! It takes guts to write as honestly as Overton does. She's brave and funny and humble and hardworking- there's a lot to be learned from this woman. Beautifully written, moving, and hilarious!

    A very moving memoir

    I must admit I am not an avid reader, but I really enjoyed this book! I found it was hard to put down. The author's descriptions of the events in her mid-life are so painfully honest that I really felt as if I were her confidant. There were also many funny moments to punctuate sections that were sad. Though I am not divorced myself, I can imagine this would be a great read for someone going through a divorce and having difficulty finding their way. Overall, reading this book was a great way to spend some time. I highly recommend it!

    Good read!

    Nice to know we're not alone. Dosen't matter what education level or up bringing we are spawned from. Love, happiness and the pursuit of being whole through relationships is a difficult path. I have a little more insight of where to start looking now.
    Thank you Dr.

    Disappointing

    This book starts out great - Overton writes well, and I was quickly engaged in the narrative. But (spoiler alert) it never goes anywhere. The end of the book is extremely frustrating - it's as if Overton just decides to stop writing. Abrupt, poorly planned - it's not even about the story line as much as the way Overton presents it. I can't recommend this book.

    This was a great book for anyone who is going through similar circumstances, being single again in mid life, and oh so true...even if I wish it were not. I can empathize because even though I am a fairly intelligent, professionally successful women in mid-life, my choices in men and with relationships are deplorable, to say the least. I also have many wonderful women friends who seem to be making similar decisions, all in the name of "love and companionship". Gratitude to the author for sharing this story...I don't feel so bad.
