A girlfriend-to-girlfriend guide to the three phases of divorce--from the initial shock of separation and what you need to know right away (Deal), to learning to shift the focus away from your ex and onto yourself and figuring out an action plan (Heal), right on through to celebrating the new you, ready for an independent life, and even dating (Reveal). With 12 shared perspectives (the authors and 10 other members of the Maplewood Divorce Club), each reader will find someone to identify with, and will benefit from a sense of community during what can be a very isolating time. A companion website provides another platform where women can come together, ask questions, and share stories. The essential message is that the end of a significant relationship is a great time to take a look at yourself to see what's working and what's not, and determine where you have opportunities to introduce positive changes.
