I stumbled across this book within days of separating from my husband of 16 years. (It had to be a God-thing as I was actually looking for a novel that might take my mind off my troubles.) Despite the desperate circumstances that brought about the marital separation, I wanted reconciliation, not an end to the marriage. Still, I knew rough waters were before us. What a blessing this book has been! It is practical, wise, down to earth, and founded on solid biblical principals. I recommended it to my husband, and he agreed to listen to it. We have now decided to purchase bound copies of the book as well to aid us as we work toward not just living together again but toward making our marriage all that it should be. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to restore a broken marriage.

I pray that this book and help start the Reconciliation to my wife and I.
I hurts so much and I'm scared to loose the one that I love so much. So, thank you for Gary for getting me started in the right path to victory in Jesus.

Very practical guide for how to reconcile after separation as well as how to deal with not reconciling. Fair representation of each partners responsibility. Strong Christian perspective, but useful for any persons.

Clearly a worthwhile commitment to devote the time to read/listen too if you are searching for some supportive and constructive methods for understanding separation. While I am not married, this information was very relative to long term relationships with a significant other that is currently in separation or ending state.

loved it! Me and my husband were separated for a little over a month and this book really helped me grow and know that everything was not on him. I failed as a wife and some areas and this book helped me realize that and this book helped me change that. I now live a happier life with my husband
If you are genuinely committed to doing your very best to avoid a divorce and your heart is sincere this is the perfect book for you no matter the outcome of your particular situation this book is suited to help guide you to a place where you can begin to live again. Gary does a wonderful job at guiding you through this process and helps you stay focused on the road to healing. Highly recommended whether you're the one who has decided to separate or the one left behind. This book is equally beneficial both to men and women. If you are feeling lost and confused as to what to do this is the book for you.
