It's time to get past the idea that divorce equals failure. Sure, it may not be what you had in mind when you walked down the aisle, but if it's the escape hatch into a better life, it should be filled with more promise. It can be celebrated.
Ask Me About My Divorce is a spicy, fun, riveting collection of essays by women from all walks of life. With the unifying thread "I got divorced, and the world came into view," the words within will make readers laugh, cry, nod their heads, and feel inspired to do what they need to for themselves. These aren't stories from women tiptoeing around a difficult subject they're about the ways divorce can be, in fact, a new lease on life.

Library Journal

"A divorce is a shameful thing, or so we tend to think, says Candace Walsh, editor of the essay collection Ask Me About My Divorce: Women Open Up About Moving On. But rather than see divorce as something ignoble or embarrassing, Walsh says, we ought to put a failed marriage in its place: It was something that worked once but doesn't anymore. Viewed that way, a divorce is a healthy way to reclaim the rest of your life.
