Product Description

About the Author

Carol Shaw personally understands the challenges women feel when they support a partner who works away. She has felt lonely, lost and depressed being left to manage it all; the family, the home, work and more; having no time for herself until finally she’d had enough. Finding strategies for herself to get out of the rut she was in, she now inspires other women with a similar lifestyle as hers maintain their own identity and live a more fulfilled life

This book is essential reading for anyone whose husband works long hours or is away from home a lot. It is an easy read, with practical strategies which will help all of us. I really like how it draws on the experiences of different women - older and younger, with kids or without kids. Something for everyone. I highly recommend it!

I just read Carol's book, Married, Home Alone, and Thriving! and I have nothing but praises. She offers real-life stories of struggling, yet successful women that we can all relate to in many ways. Her suggestions for handling the responsibility of "single-parenting" is invaluable. Great job, Carol!
