Summary:

The Newest Oprah Bookclub 2016 Selection

The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.

Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured outthree happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller listher husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.

Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another - and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living truetrue to themselves and to each other.

Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

    I found Glennon's book to be powerful and insightful. It touches on the gender issues of how a lot of us were brought up - body issues for women and not expressing feelings for boys and men. I found helpful insight that I can use in my own life to help me deal with relationship issues and how I view myself even though I've never had the same body image issues that she went through. I did find that she had a tendency to go on and on about some of the petty issues to the point that I really thought, ok, stop now. But overall found the book helpful and insightful and would recommend it.

    Wow. Such truth and vulnerability in her words. I feel inspired after listening to her hardships that she decided to work through instead of continuously running from. Anybody that has struggled in a portion of aspect of their life can recognize themselves in this book. Waiting for her next book!

    Glennon is a new author to me. I found her personal insight was so honest as if the character really went through the processes from childhood, teen, to woman and mother and I was reading her mind, or her diary. I've never read an author that can nail the intimate vulnerable emotions like this author. Yes she goes on a lot about the issues and how she relates and reacts to them, but if your a woman and deal with the monkey chatter in your mind then you will be able to relate, and learn from the messages in this book. I had many insights as I was really able to relate to her trying to do the right thing and make a better life for herself. I'm thrilled to have found this read and this author.

    Simply stated deep truths! I was compelled to listen during all my free moments. Really felt like a story that offered solutions to all the moments in life. This or that choices to whittle away the complex emotional clutter crisis can throw into our space.

  • Leah Stott

    The narrator is the author! Also I loved it. It was powerful and moved me. I related a lot and am glad I can be a love warrior. There is a lot of repeat and stuff that is "fluff" and I want to just move on but I got through it and it was pleasant.

  • Theodore Murray

    Wonderful and insightful. I felt like I was with Glennon on her journey. Beautiful.

  • Melissa Richardson

    I listened to both of her books back to back and while I think there are some good messages, for the most part I think she is just over the top. I got tired of listening to her pick every little thing apart to the 9th degree. Sometimes you just have to roll with things. I felt anxious and stressed through the whole thing.

  • Katherine Koch

    I liked it for the most part, but some of this comes off as pretentious and heavy handed. There are a lot of truths here, but it's also a bit much in the way she handles things. The narrator was good, fitting, which helped. I'm giving the narrator a better score than the author. I think it's an interesting read, but the 2 hours drag on. The connection to her husband never seems very real or full of love to me in the beginning or the end. And isn't that part of the point? Maybe I'm just a cynic.

    AMAZING!! Would totally recommend, and have! Bought recently for my best friend for her birthday! I love this book!
