Editor's Note

Become a true love warrior…

In confronting not just issues with her marriage, but her struggles with bulimia and alcoholism, Glennon Doyle explores the darkest places to show us the brightest ones, where we don’t have to settle for half-hearted happinesses.

Description

An Oprah Bookclub 2016 Selection

The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.

Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out—three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list—her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.

Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another—and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.

Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

A Macmillan Audio production.

  • (4/5)
    Second reading of this one for me. It starts a little slow but you really begin to delve into the motivations of the individual around chapter 7 and I think it finishes strong. It's definitely a book that I have referenced with clients and in counseling especially those that are struggling to know themselves.

    Its a great listen but the audio file in scribd go blank for few seconds multiple times. I felt cheated for listening the book in this way. However, as the topic was gripping, I kept on going and kept my attention to the book.

    This was an amazing book with truths that I’ve lived with and never been able to articulate. The author says what many of us feel inside, and would never share with anyone. Listening to her story, brought back truths that I lived through in my marriage, and was too afraid to be real about. Thank you for reminding me that I am a warrior!!!....and that I am not alone.
