This book is a smart, emotionally charged read. I laughed out loud serveral times and cried at others. A page turner full of dramatic highs and lows, Sheila Ellison tells us the story of how she overcame divorce and built a new life for herself and her children. Throughout the book we also hear stories of other women who have survived divorce. Covering topics such as, child support, weekend party time with dad....then back home to fuddy duddy mom , re-entering the job force after giving up years to build a family, dating again, facing peer approval /dissaproval, finding a new home, handling attorneys.....readers can learn from the stories of these capable women. I did.
