For one year following her painful divorce, Denise Hildreth chronicled every emotion, every new discovery, and every moment of God's unyielding presence. Flying Solo, the diary of that roller-coaster year, begins on the day Denise sat in court to hear a judge end her 13-year marriage and follows her through twelve months of soul-searching, heartbreak, and healing.
With vivid stories, raw emotion, and unwavering honesty, Denise opens a window for divorced or divorcing readers to breathe in the fresh air of God's Spirit. For, among many surprises in store for Denise during her first year of flying solo, one of the most startling was this: God desires to be with us through our pain. She writes, "Flying solo isn't about being alone. It is about living a life that may hurt at times, wound at times, betray at times; but there is still an incredible unobstructed view of heaven, and an opportunity to discover God in the middle of it." Readers struggling to stay afloat in the wake of a marriage's end will hear from a fellow traveler that they don't have to settle for treading water . . . they can learn to fly.
