#1 New York Times Bestseller
Oprah's Bookclub 2016 Selection
"Riveting…a worthy investment…this book has real wisdom."
—New York Times Book Review
"Provocative….I adore her honesty, her vulnerability, and her no-nonsense wisdom, and I know you will, too."
The highly anticipated memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle, Love Warrior tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.
Just when Glennon Doyle Melton 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, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. 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 Warrioris 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 our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly 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, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.
Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account 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.
such a good book. touched home in so many ways!45
Reading through every single page of this book brought me closer to a better perspective in life. I kept asking God to give me some thing that can show me what I need to see in my current status of life for better guidance, and Reading this book did that and more. I hope whoever reads this review scrolls right back up and BUYS this, reads it and really use every example and lesson it provides as one of their own. Thank you for writing this. You changed my life.55
She is selfish and lazy, only thinks of herself. Hurts others with her actions, makes her own problems. I have no sympathy for her, only hate. It’s well written, but a terrible waste of a time to read.15
Somewhere, sometimes fully, sometimes just a bit, you will see your coming of age story, your coming into “full”-self story. Soften your eyes as you take the ride to look back her.45
Great app. When get we get a “wish list” feature?45
Glennon helped me realize that true love has to come from within before you can invite it in.55
The story started well enough, it was well written, interesting, and I was really liking it. About halfway through, it was all I could do to keep from putting it down. It was like another author took over. Boring, redundant, preachy, and self absorbed are the words that come to mind. My three star rating is generous35
This book is important and relatable, everyone needs to read it. Glennon is so honest and vulnerable in her writing. I read this in less than 8 hours... not because I'm a fast reader (im not at all) but because I couldn't put it down.55
This book was very touching and I would honestly recommend it to my friends.55
I get asked to review apps, etc. on the regular. However, this book is by far one of the best, if not the best, that I've ever read. Her candor, vulnerability and self-examination is just amazing. Her opening up about her own struggles and successes helps others reveal their (my) own truths. Whether you're struggling or not, this is a book that every woman should read.55
