After my husband moved out I was desperate to read anything for advice and/or direction. I read everything from "forget the bum" to "do this and he'll come home". Not until I read Linda's book did I begin to get my heart and mind where they needed to be. Away from my husband and failed marriage and back to the heart of God. Linda has an amazing way of walking through the pain with you but encouraging and directing you out wallowing in it. She helps you move your eyes off the situation and onto the loving face of Jesus! I have read the book 3 times and each time it has been a blessing in a new way as my heart changes and grows through this dark time. I have and will continue to recommend and give this book to anyone who is facing separation or divorce. It may not change the out come of your separation but it will change your out look and your heart for God!
I could not believe what I was reading!!! It was like Linda Rooks opened my heart and mind and read everything that was inside!! I could not have written a better book to describe what every woman goes through during a separation! Thank you Linda! You have given me hope and encouragement during this troubled time, and I praise God for giving you the insight and accurate words and appropriate scriptures for guiding those of us who have unfortunately followed your footsteps. May God bless you for your faithfulness! I encourage ANY woman (or even man) who is going through a separation to read this book!!You will be totally amazed!
My best friend is going through a time of separation and most probably divorce. After getting Linda's book, I rushed it to my friend with an encouraging word. "This neither promotes divorce nor staying together. It's just to get you through THIS hard time." She called a few days later. "This has helped save my sanity," she said. "I have wept and I have found peace. That's what I need most of all; peace." Linda's words are penned not from interviews but from first-hand knowledge. These are truly HER words. I have had the blessing and joy of watching her take journals of hard and trying days and turn them into words of hope and healing. This work is truly superb.We live in an era when divorce is on the rise and yet no one wants to address the core of hurt: the heart. So many books are written about how to simply carry on...when to date again...how to get credit in your name. All important stuff! But what about the healing of the heart? And what if...what if???...God is doing a work that will change the course of your life in oh, so many ways? Is it possible to wrap your mind around that while trying to deal with so much other stuff? Linda's book is A+! If you or someone you know is in the midst of separation or divorce, get it! You won't be sorry. Eva Marie Everson, Author: The Potluck Club Books; Sex, Lies, and the Media
