Overview

After surviving divorce, Wendy Swallow had given up on love for good. A series of bad dates simply confirmed it—she did not need a man. She could be happy on her own. Then, when she wasn't looking, Charlie appeared. In a humorous, reflective voice, Swallow shares with us her honest, emotional journey of remarriage. Navigating the rubble of failed marriages-the blame, the embarrassment, the disrupted parenting—Wendy and Charlie aim to create a union unadulterated by the loss and pain of previous mistakes. But reality is often different than intention, and Swallow's memoir is poignant and engaging, as she traces the pitfalls and triumphs of remarriage.
