  1. The Road to Recovery, Survival Tips for “The Big D”

    By Alyson Madsen

    This book sings to every divorced woman. Or man, for that matter. Run; don’t walk, to buy your copy!

    Alyson Madsen, divorced after a lifetime of marriage, offers a trove of treasures and admonitions in her book about survival after divorce. The structure of the book’s A-B-C format promises good things ahead if one follows the recommended guidelines.

    The Road to Recovery, based on time honored self-help philosophies, offers positive choices for healthy living while acknowledging the gravity of circumstances of the divorced person.

    Each page takes a letter of the alphabet and offers specific strategies beginning with that letter. In my opinion, each strategy is designed to zing or zap, but in a good way. My favorite is “Calm Down; this isn’t forever.” Paraphrasing another well-known book, one might say “And it came to Pass.” Not to stay.

    Adam Moore’s whimsical illustrations warm your heart and dovetail perfectly with Madsen’s how-to survival tips for life after divorce.

    My husband and I, who now share a blended family, feel this little book leaves no excuse, no wiggle room for the divorced person to stay stressed.

    Alyson Madsen is a long-time educator and presently teaches at The Youth Opportunity Center for Muncie Community Schools. She is a free-lance writer, a regular contributor for M-Magazine and is working on her first novel.
