A woman who is separated needs a friend to walk beside her on her difficult journey.
Broken Heart on Hold is that friend, one that will uplift, encourage, and hold her up while offering practical insights and pointing her to God. It is a book of hope. Because it is written by a woman who has gone through the trauma of a separation and the eventual healing of her own marriage, the reader will know she is not alone.
This collection of honest, heartfelt messages reaches down into the valleys of a woman's loneliness, travels with her through her mental labyrinths, and sheds light in the dark tunnels where answers seem nonexistent. It provides the emotional and spiritual strength to help a woman sort through her confusion.
While winding her way through the maze of her emotions, she will realize there is hope as she hangs on to God and trusts him for the outcome. Broken Heart on Hold is a book she will return to again and again.
Amanda5 Stars Out Of 5Regaining control where all seems lost.October 26, 2015AmandaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was amazing. I was not at a good place religiously or emotionally after my husband walked away from our marriage unexpectedly. Although my story was very different than the author's the emotions were 100% on par with my journey. I found myself having a bad day and flipping to the section about what ever emotion I was going through. I highlighted, made notes and really found this book to be a dose of reality. It was amazing to know that all the craziness I was feeling was normal; so much so that this book, which relates to thousands of people, was fully explaining ever feeling I felt. It helped me walk through each one of the steps.
My husband came home after 5 months. Even had he not come home, this book helped me reach a point where I felt stable and in control again, which was the hardest part of being left.
IssiePerth, AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A companion in pain, God centeredJune 30, 2013IssiePerth, AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5After my husband and I separated I went into overdrive to find what had happened, ...how did we arrive to this situation? This could not be happening to me. I read many christian books on marriage and separation. All of them were great inspiration, and I believe God used them all to point to my sins, to show me where I had failed, with clarity and love. But I must say this book, by Linda Rooks, is the book I still continue reading. The vulnerability and the honesty with which Linda shares her story, step by step from beginning to end, makes you feel you are sharing with a friend who understands. Someone who does not take the pain away or justifies your actions, but someone who points you to God, holding your hand. Not two stories are ever the same, but sin is sin regardless of its form and our Lord God is the only one that matters. I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone going through the pain of separation "...to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.

Jesus Christ is the ultimate healer but it helps to read a book from someone who has walked the road I'm on now. It looks like I will be getting divorced but I pick this book up and it helps me not to give up. Don't focus on the circumstances but give it all to God!

Tell us a little about yourself. After being married over twenty years, my husband and I went through a painful three year separation in the '90s. After allowing God to work many changes in each of us, we reunited in 1998 with a stronger and better marriage than before. Because I have both felt the pain, but found the hope, I have a strong desire to help others in the midst of marital trauma.
I have published articles in a number of national and local publications, including Focus on the Family, HomeLife, Light and Life and others. I write regularly for Tapestry, a Walk Thru the Bible devotional magazine. I am listed in Who's Who.
My husband and I have two married daughters, two young grandsons, and one of my daughters is expecting twins. Being new grandparents together is one of my husband's and my greatest joys.
What was your motivation behind this project? When my husband and I were separated, I desperately needed something to sustain me emotionally and spiritualy. I went to bookstores looking for a devotional book that could give me spiritual strength through that difficult time, but I found nothing. Later, as I encountered various doubts and fears, I sat at my computer and wrote them down until God brought me to a place of peace. These writings became the beginnings of Broken Heart on Hold.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? As a person in marital crisis winds their way through the maze of their emotions and struggles to make sense of their pain, my hope is that Broken Heart on Hold can give them the emotional and spiritual strength to sort through their confusion so they know how to take the next step and make good decisions. I want a person to feel they have a friend to walk beside them through this period of loneliness to help them discover the light at the end of their dark tunnel. I want them to find healing and hope as well as practical answers to their deepest needs.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? One of my favorite books is The Sacred Romance by Brent Curtis and John Eldredge. In my early life, I was greatly influenced by the books of Catherine Marshall.
