  • Cristine Mermaid
    To be fair, this is an ARC so it hasn't completely been edited yet so a couple of the issues I have with it may not be relevant by the time it is actually released.I started reading this on break and it resonated. I am their demographic. I related to so much of it and it was incredibly reassuring to...

    A big thank you to NetGalley for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Not sure I got this as I am now separated . Maybe to see how I can avoid making the same mistakes. I found it interesting, but not with many tips. It reconfirmed that what I was feeling wasn't unusual. I may have missed ...

    Full disclosure: I am neither married at the time, nor living together with anyone. Yet I still found this a helpful and informative read with regards to relationships.

While she may be a highly experienced and well-regarded therapist, her writing style comes across as dull and repetitive. I found this book to be a...

    This isn't exactly a marriage advice book that lays out how to communicate or how to stay in love, but it is a really important book for anyone who has been married for a long time and is in midlife. It just shows that your troubles are neither insurmountable nor are they all that unique. The book g...

    We went through a rough patch a few years ago and I wish we had read this book. It would have been infinitely more useful than any of the others we read. Even after a couple of years on the other side of our rough patch, I still found the book really helpful. There are many conversations I would lik...
