Building a Life You Love After Losing the Love of Your Life by Myra McElhaney
A gallon of tea in the refrigerator is an old southern tradition. But when Myra’s husband died, she replaced the tea with a pitcher of margaritas. That was before she knew there was a warrant out for her arrest!
Building a Life You Love After Losing the Love of Your Life is not your average widow memoir. Myra takes a brutally honest look at her roller coaster ride through grief and even in her darkest hours her humor shines. While sobbing in her Ben & Jerry’s, doing grief therapy with a professional, and railing at God, Myra realized that she wasn’t married to a dead man and just waiting to join him.
If you’re a widow or widower or know someone who is, this book can be your saving grace. Just because there’s tragedy in your life doesn’t mean your life has to be a tragedy. Through her insights, warmth, and understanding, Myra demonstrates that you, too, can love life again.
“A must read for every woman!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Martha Lanier
I read this book from start to finish in just one sitting. I simply couldn’t put it down. Myra has taken what some would think is a serious subject and incorporated a touch of humor in just the right places that support and respect the emotions that women may experience in her same situation. She has such clarity with her thoughts that every woman can relate to her feelings regardless of their situation in life. Although I’m recently divorced, I also lost a marriage and will face many similar circumstances being on my own solo. Thanks to Myra sharing her experiences, I am now better prepared for some of the challenges I’m facing.
