Dottie1tThroughout this book, I felt Bruce had a secret window into my own life and private thoughts. Many private feelings I am currently dealing with were addressed and revealed in a manner that made me feel it is not only normal, but I am truly not alone in this. I was surprised that I cried while reading it and the comfort that the words brought me. I read tons of self-help books, among other types of books, and this book actually gives me hope and things to look forward to. My tears were from the fact that I am facing the words I read. I have been getting negative feedback from outside sources and these words reassured me not to listen, keep them out of your life and do what is right. The section on the other home/parent opened my eyes and freed me. I did not go into reading this book thinking it would help me on such a deep emotional level.

Shannon1tWhat I enjoyed the most from reading this book is that it was actually written by someone who had gone through a divorce and understood the everyday thoughts and experiences one goes through when trying to understand this new “status”; not only for yourself but for your child as well. Most of the books I had read on this topic were written by a clinical professional, but they didn’t make me feel “better” about my situation. I appreciate Bruce’s honesty and sharing of his story with his daughters. I was able to relate to the different phases one needs to go through to heal as well as making this new life a healthy one for my child. I had doubted myself so many times on whether or not I was making the best decisions for myself and my child, and this book reaffirmed that I was. Thank you!

Thank you for this experienced reference Bruce, it’s a terrific tool to have around! ~Michelle Wiederman, Single Mom of 2, Owner/Entrepreneur-MutliPlex Elements.
