Writing in a style that is both unsentimental and profoundly moving, Swallow traces the arc of her marriage to a complex man ten years her senior. She offers glimpses of her childhood and young adulthood that prove enlightening to the relationship, and talks about her struggle to balance her burgeoning career and newfound confidence as a mother. And she talks about divorce: the hopeful fantasies she concocted while still in her marriage, as well as the harsh realities she faced when she realized the pain divorce inflicts on everyone involvedespecially children. As she candidly documents her experience over the course of many years, Swallow reveals the overwhelming financial and emotional stresses of divorce, but also the joys of independence and renewal. People say marriages break up, writes Swallow, but mine finally broke down. Her journey through divorces rough terrainand the triumphant reconstruction of her life after divorceoffer encouragement and inspiration to anyone struggling with a marriage that is breaking apart.
