Published by iUniverseBooks
In The Green Side of a Woman, author Kerstin Dahlin Hedenblad—building on her own experience of divorce following thirty years of marriage—shares the best of her interactions with women around the world. Here, she focuses on her conversations with married women in two very different countries, Sweden and Kenya. Through these meetings, she found many common patterns in their stories, as well as great differences. Among the women, she explored universal themes of faith, hope, love, strength, commitment, and dedication—as well as fatigue, pain, struggle, forlornness, and signs of resignation.

She shares the stories of three women from each country to celebrate the power of the universal female spirit. Their stories are meant to serve as wake-up calls to women of the world, especially those who have allowed themselves to be diminished in their marriages. With humour and empathy, she offers up courage, joy, pride, strength, and trust as inspiration for those still searching for their inner bliss. She hopes to inspire women to encounter reality as it really is and to give way to the power of the present. When you can accept the past and appreciate the gifts of the moment, nothing can stop you from creating new possibilities.

Are you going to make yourself the source of your blame, or are you going to rise above it and thrive?
