Love Warrior (Oprah's Book Club)

A Memoir

By Glennon Doyle

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

New York Times bestselling author, and founder of momastery.com, Glennon Doyle's inspiring memoir of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.

THE NEWEST OPRAH BOOKCLUB 2016 SELECTION

'A TESTAMENT TO THE POWER OF VULNERABILITY . . . IT'S AS IF SHE REACHED INTO HER HEART, CAPTURED THE RAW EMOTIONS THERE, AND TRANSLATED THEM INTO WORDS THAT ANYONE WHO'S EVER KNOWN PAIN OR SHAME CAN RELATE TO' OPRAH WINFREY, Oprah's Book Club 2016 selection

'EPIC' ELIZABETH GILBERT | 'BLEW ME AWAY' BRENÉ BROWN

Just when Glennon Doyle was beginning to feel she had it all figured out - three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list - her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed.
A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, rock bottom was a familiar place to Glennon.
In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life. Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on.
This astonishing memoir reveals how internalizing our culture's standards of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for men and women to ever really know one another - and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, fall in love.
Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring tale of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

A testament to the power of vulnerability... It's as if she reached into her heart, captured the raw emotions there, and translated them into words that anyone who's ever known pain or shame can relate to — Oprah Winfrey (Oprah's Book Club selection)
I have long admired the work of Glennon Doyle both her writing and her mission but with Love Warrior, she has outdone herself. She has reached a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Her story about the resurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring with outrageous courage to trust each other) is something beyond merely inspirational; it is epic. Melton has, indeed, become a love warrior. This book will change lives, and I am incredibly grateful that it exists. — Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of EAT PRAY LOVE and BIG MAGIC
This is a book about what it means to be human to wrestle with love, hurt, addiction, vulnerability, intimacy, and grace. Love Warrior blew me away. We can all find pieces of our own stories reflected in Glennon s powerful words. We are so lucky to have her courage and wisdom in the world. We need this kind of truth-telling if we are ever going to find our way back to each other. — Brené Brown, bestselling author of RISING STRONG and DARING GREATLY
Love Warrior is a book with so much painful truth packed into its pages that every person who's ever married or plans to marry should really give it a read — Chicago Tribune
How can I do justice to this book? Moving and brilliant and funny and shocking and heartbreaking and inspiring, Love Warrior raises provocative questions about just what is possible for a person, a marriage, a family, a life. At the heart of this story is the insistence that we don't have to settle we can explore our shadows, and we re not just going to survive it, but we re going to come out the other side a whole new person with new love, new hope, new strength, and maybe even a new marriage. This is a big, stunning, buoyant, honest, raw glimpse into the life of an astonishing woman, but it is also a punch in the face to anyone anywhere who believes that this is just how it is and it's not going to get any better. — Rob Bell, bestselling author of LOVE WINS
This elegant, moving memoir is about one woman's marriage, but also much more than that. Glennon writes about a hunger for love that all of us feel and the only food that ultimately feeds us. She understands the unique relationship between spiritual and romantic love, and in finding one, she masters the other. Truly a wonderful book. — Marianne Williamson, bestselling author of A RETURN TO LOVE
Candid, brave, and generous — Kirkus
