Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Berry (The 50 Most Influential Women in American Law, LJ 1/97) provides a good introduction to the stages of divorce and recovery. The book includes information from professionals in a variety of fields, as well as everyday people who have been through a divorce. Berry discusses the emotional impact of divorce, the effect on children, legal matters, remarriage, and blended families. In the last chapter, she lists helpful agencies and resources. Easy to read and understand, her book adopts a positive tone and keeps the focus on looking ahead. It offers helpful advice to those going through an unfortunately common experience. Recommended for public and academic libraries.--Kathy Ingels Helmond, Indianapolis-Marion Cty. P.L., IN
