Overview

The truth about happiness, heartbreak, and helping each other.

A natural storyteller and humorist, Corinne Edwards welcomes you to her world in this unapologetic memoir about rediscovering herself and realizing her true feminine power as a single woman. Sharing letters she wrote to family members and friends after the death of her husband, Edwards allows readers to eavesdrop on her most intimate thoughts, fears, regrets, and realizations about surviving heartbreak and adjusting to life on her own. She invites as many laughs as tears in disclosing personal revelations about grief, growth, and divine guidance.

"When I wasn't laughing, I had tears in my eyes. Every woman will find a piece of her life here as she travels toward wholeness."
Arielle Ford, author of Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Lover

"I was deeply touched by this book. It brought me to smiles and it brought me to tears. Most of all, it brought me to the truth of how real people live real life. I cannot remember being so moved. This book is a wonderful gift, and your life will be enriched by reading it. Don't pass this by. If peering into the soul of another is a conversation with God--and it is--that is what you are about to have here. You will not soon forget what has been revealed to you."
Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God

"This is a delightful book and a needed look at the powerful path single women take in our society. It is written from the heart."
Judith Orloff, M.D., author of Dr. Judith Orloff's Guide to Intuitive Healing

"Reflections from a Woman Alone is a heroic account of a single woman's pursuit of self-love and dignity in a male-identified world. It is refreshingly candid, often hilarious, and definitely true. It is a must for all women, no matter their age or relationship status."
Sonia Choquette, Ph.D., author of True Balance and The Psychic Pathway

    From Alone to All One - Wonderful!

    Good books don't make you work to read them. They just let themselves be picked up, and that's it, because they fill you with wisdom, grace and a better sense of what's important and why it should be cherished. This is a GOOD book!

    about loneliness and renewal¿full of humor, strength, honesty, truth, and hope

    ¿You only get a minute / The stone has not been set / before you hear the question / `Are you seeing someone yet?¿ ¿ Any woman who has lost a husband, however long or happy that marriage might have been, has heard those words from solicitous relatives and friends. It¿s usually followed by ¿Remember, life goes on,¿ and accompanied by an invitation to some gathering where an eligible male will be offered for evaluation. Edwards lost her husband after a long and devastating illness, and could only be glad his suffering was ended; she was more shocked at the speed at which people tried to get her ¿set up¿ again with a man¿as if she were somehow incomplete without one. This is the chronicle of some six years of her adjustment to being a woman alone, through legal and financial arrangments, concern for and from her grown sons, the disappointments of dating again, the love and support of friends near and abroad. What makes it unique is that Edwards tells the story through her correspondence, diary entries, bills, lists, memos, and all the scraps of paper that chart our daily lives. It¿s a wonderful book, not about grief at all but about loneliness and renewal¿full of humor, strength, honesty, truth, and hope, it affirms our power to shape and reshape our lives as needed.
