The emotionally charged story of a divorce that brought the
surprising gift of grace
Just when Stacy Morrison thought everything in her life had come
together, her husband of ten years announced that he wanted a divorce.
She was left alone with a new house that needed a lot of work, a new
baby who needed a lot of attention, and a new job in the high-pressure
world of New York magazine 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
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.
