In the bestselling tradition of 'The Bitch In The House' comes a provocative collection of essays by prominent women writers on the turning points in their own marriages—the point at which they decided to stick it out or end it.
Isabel Rose saw red flags before her marriage but ignored them. He was a great catch and so was she. Everyone thought they made the perfect couple. Ann Hood, like any happily married woman, had occasionally thought of divorcing her husband, until the sudden and tragic death of her five year old daughter forged their bond for life. When Terry McMillan went through her painful and public divorce she was surprised how the trauma affected not only family but everyone in their lives. Andrea Chapin, after years of battling with her musician husband about money, finally realised she had to become the mogul in the family in order for her marriage, and her family, to survive.
In 'The Honeymoon’s Over', women candidly discuss the good times, the bad times, and, what makes or breaks a marriage. At turns brutally honest, sad, touching, and triumphant, these essays reflect the fragility of romantic relationships and will resonate with all readers.
