Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Without intending to, I read Stronger Day by Day in one sitting. Turning the pages, I felt that a warm and wise mentor was gently and skillfully shining a light through what often is a dark and troubling time. I recommend this book.”
—Frederic Luskin, Ph.D., director of the Stanford Forgiveness Project and author of Forgive for Good

“Unquestionably, divorce is an emotional journey. Stronger Day by Day is an insightful book that gives comfort and help to those going through the process. It not only normalizes the emotions that often accompany the divorce experience, it provides meaningful positive affirmations. Perhaps most importantly, it includes helpful exercises that empower the reader. I will share this book with my clients, who will find it invaluable. I will also share it with colleagues to reinforce why we continue to work to ensure the availability of divorces that take into account the emotional and financial needs of families.”
—Sherri Goren Slovin, JD, president of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

“Susan Pease Gadoua is brilliant! Every now and then I come across a practitioner who really knows her stuff—first, because she has the credentials, but more importantly, because she’s been there, done that! I highly recommend Stronger Day by Day to anyone trying to pick up the pieces after divorce. This book does an excellent job of normalizing the vast array of emotions that one feels during divorce, and the author writes in a way that lets you know she truly understands. It also calls on the reader to act esteemably, whereby everyone benefits.”
—Francine D. Ward, speaker and author of Esteemable Acts

A relative of mine told me that her therapist recommended this book to her and it helped her in a tremendous way. So I figured I try it since I am a recent divorcee and find it challenging going through this process. Wow I would not have thought that such a simple book would be so helpful. It is meant to be read on a daily basis, similar to a devotional. It is very grounding and intentional. I would recommend this to anyone who has recently divorced and is having a hard time reestablishing routine and dealing with grief and loss.

Her first book on contemplating divorce was great and I was hoping for a similar book on the process after divorce. However, each chapter is incredibly short and not nearly as thorough as her first book. Overall, I was disappointed with this book.
