Tammy Wynette sang about their "D.I.V.O.R.C.E." way back in the 60s. Suzanne Vega compared it to being like a widow in "Widow's Walk." One of Liz Phair's most popular songs is "The Divorce Song." In fact, divorce is often the backbone for some of the most poignant songs of all time.
Books that feature dissolvement of marriages are fairly common as well - Mary Alice Monroe's "Life Is A River," Elizabeth Berg's "Open House," and Claire Cook's "Must Love Dogs," to name a few recent selections.
But I have never run across a book in which the "D" word was written about with such lively and downright funny treatment as "The 'D' Word" by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke.
About The Book:
When Elle met Kevin, the last thing she wanted was another relationship. Especially not with a man with baggage-she already had enough of her own. She left her fiancé, Chase right before their wedding to avoid the imminent D word, something she’s convinced runs in her family like a disease. But a year later, she’s no closer to becoming less skeptical about marriage. And despite her attachment to Kevin and his son, when Elle sees just how far Jordan’s willing to go to win Kevin back, Elle starts to question if she should have left Chase in the first place.
In The "D" Word you’ll walk in the shoes of Jordan and Elle as they discover that sometimes you’re not that different from the person who makes you feel the most insecure.
