Description
Just when Stacy Morrison thought she had it all, her husband of ten years announced that he wanted a divorce. She was left alone with a new house that needed lots of work, a new baby who needed lots of attention, and a new job in the high-pressure world of New York publishing. Morrison had never been one to believe in fairy tales. As far as she was concerned, happy endings were the product of the kind of ambition and hard work that had propelled her to the top of her profession. But she had always considered her relationship with her husband a safe place in her often stressful life. All of her assumptions about how life works crumbled, though, when she discovered that no amount of will and determination was going to save her marriage. For Stacy, the only solution was to keep on living, and to listen-as deeply and openly as possible-to what this experience was teaching her. Told with humor and heart, her honest and intimate account of the stress of being a working mother while trying to make sense of her unraveling marriage offers unexpected lessons of love, forgiveness, and dignity that will resonate with women everywhere.

table_of_contents We begin at the end -- A partnership is not really a partnership -- You don't get to know why, but ask anyway -- You can handle more than you think (but a little denial helps) -- Anger hides everything you need to feel to get past the anger -- You are not alone, and yes, you are totally alone -- Your child knows more about life than you do (think small) -- Grief is not a mountain, it is a river -- When you really accept that you can't be safe, you can be safe -- The answer is a riddle -- The end is the beginning.
