For the more than one million women who get divorced each year, welcome to your support group.

Wise, comforting, and uplifting, The Optimist's Guide to Divorce captures the experience of sisterhood through the voices of its authors and their community of women in the Maplewood Divorce Club--women who understand what you're going through, who know the practical issues as well as the emotional ones, and who can help you keep a sense of hope and a sense of humor.

Brimming with stories and insights, valuable resources and smart strategies, in-the-trenches tips and sanity-saving takeaways, this book prepares you for each phase of divorce, from having "the talk," to breaking the news to family and friends, to figuring out where to live, to co-parenting with an ex, to rebounding and rebooting your life. It's divided into three sections that cover the process from start to finish-- Deal, Heal, and Reveal --and make it easy to jump in wherever you are in your journey. And even better, to make the choices that will help you develop a better relationship with the one person you'll be with for the rest of your life--yourself.
