This is an amazing story that every adult should read. Rita gracefully but, with brutal honesty, shares her experiences about love, family, catastrophe and then moving on to a new life. It is an inspiring tale by an amazing woman.

The author teaches primarily by example, drawing off the experiences of her divorce and the situations that followed. Covering initial depression and suicidal thoughts to the blessing in disguise that can be looking for a new romantic partner while bringing children and an ex-husband to the table, her story highlights both the lows and the highs and proves that no negative circumstance is permanent. Magalde also uses her knowledge of self-help authors and speeches that she discovered coming out of her own post-divorce depression to help other women do the same. One consideration that increases the audience of this book even more is that the author acknowledges that men can also use this book as a means to support recently divorced women with their period of transition as well. For divorcees, this book can at times be a crutch to lean on, a commiserator, and an example that divorce isn’t the end of the world but rather an opportunity to make positive changes.
