A book by Laura Munson. I haven't read it yet. I saw her on television this morning and looked this up.

Sounds good - hey...if one of my favorite authors gives it a thumbs up, I almost have to read it.

Before the book was published, the author wrote a very popular article in the NYT...you can look it up.

I read the book and it's amazing. It's about the author's process of dealing with her husband's MLC, which ends with them reconciling. But I don't recommend reading it as a guide to recovering a marriage when a person is in MLC. Her intention in the book is to write about how she dealt with a life crisis by working on herself, letting go, choosing to not put her life on hold, but also standing for her marriage (in a time-limited way BTW!). It's an inspiring read.

Anybody see that Laura Munson is now amicably divorced?

I didn't read it, but wow not the ending the couple intended I would guess.

By the way I miss flowmom! Anyone know how she's doing?
