BOOK RE­VIEW - FIND A MORE EM­POW­ERED ‘YOU’

Lift Magazine - - Contents - Re­viewed by Naomi Gora

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS BOOK?

Run­away Hus­bands was rec­om­mended to me not long af­ter my sep­a­ra­tion. I went to the web­site to check it out and was as­tounded at how much it de­scribed what I was go­ing through. I bought a copy im­me­di­ately.

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

It’s a guide to re­cov­er­ing from ‘Wife Aban­don­ment Syn­drome’ which is when a hus­band leaves his wife abruptly with no prior sign of be­ing un­happy. Wives in this sit­u­a­tion of­ten think they are in a car­ing and at­ten­tive mar­riage when their hus­bands leave out-of-the-blue and seem to turn into to­tally dif­fer­ent peo­ple overnight.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO READ?

I de­voured it in a couple of days and still re­fer to it reg­u­larly.

WOULD YOU REC­OM­MEND IT? WHY OR WHY NOT?

Ab­so­lutely. This book made me feel like I wasn’t crazy. I fi­nally had some sort of an­swer or un­der­stand­ing of all the ‘Why’s’ run­ning through my head and fi­nally ac­cepted that I prob­a­bly would never get the an­swers I was seek­ing. If you need help get­ting your head around what hap­pened to you and how to move on, I couldn’t rec­om­mend a bet­ter book.
