Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This guide to strengthening relationships is a natural follow-up to Luhrs's The Simple Living Guide. Once again, simplicity and self-awareness are seen as the indispensable keys. Luhr believes that people in good relationships enable one another to have sanctuaries that make their time together that much more meaningful. Using real-life stories, she shows how lovers relieve stress and latent competition by deciding which day-to-day problems to solve and how best to handle them. Her message is simple: Intimacy requires clearings.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Following her popular Simple Living Guide, a massive compendium based on her newsletter Simple Living Journal, Luhrs presents a more focused book that artfully applies the principles of the simplicity movement to cultivating loving relationships. She aims to guide readers in making "soul connections," first by uncovering the inner self that's often masked by outward life, then by focusing on another individual and other important matters. Reducing clutter, creating a sanctuary at home and establishing rituals, she explains, can help foster this growth. Employing a style similar to that of her bestselling earlier book, Luhrs sprinkles the pages with quotations from a range of inspirational sources and specific steps for connecting with a partner. She also provides some wonderful extras, like suggestions for holding a green (ecologically sound) wedding, other ceremonies to mark commitment and pages of well-chosen resources, mostly books, for further contemplation. The heart of the book lies in the steps to simplicity, depicted by in-depth stories of couples who represent examples of dedicated partnerships. The profiled pairs tend to be in the vanguard of New Ageish living--for example, Stephen and Ondrea Levine, authors of Embracing the Beloved; the McDowells, herbalists and authors of The Sanctuary Garden--but each couple presents an original lesson that may inspire readers. Snapshots add a folksy dimension and may reinforce in readers the possibility of true connection between real people. Rarely has the rationale for living simply been presented in such an attractive style; Luhrs's book seems ideally poised for healthy, bestselling life.
