Love Warrior
The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton 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 Warrior is 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, fall in love.

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.

    FGMAMTC Blog Review I can't possibly explain how much I love this book. I was totally unprepared for how much it touched me. I shed several tears. I've not walked the same journey or had some of the same problems as the author, but so much of the process and feeling is universal to wh...

    Thank you to Goodsread/author for sending me a review of this book. So I've had quite a few problems with this book, but mostly just with the main character. She was very whiny to me. She complained about her life a lot and I'm just asking what for? She wants to feel pretty, smart, acc...

    This is a beautifully written book about a woman's journey to finding love and reuniting with her mind, body and spirit. It's a story that not only touches you but changes you, too. Glennon is brutally honest with herself and her readers and it's awe inspiring to witness. This book is ...

    I didn't know anything about Glennon Doyle Melton prior to reading this book. I had never read her blog or her previous work. I was attracted to this mostly because of the cover and the title but also because I had read that she was a recovering alcoholic.This memoir is about her strug...

    Self indulgent and long winded memoir of a "mom" blogger. I'm sad I cannot get the time back I spent reading this book. A true disappointed. ...

    Ok, I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the head cold (and cold medicine) I've been nursing while I read this book. Maybe it's a lack of experiential empathy to what she's going through (not having dealt with a spouse's infidelity). Maybe it's Maybelline. I don't know. But I just didn'...

    Biographies/memoirs where women lay their life out there, telling all the gritty details, seems to be a popular thing now. I do applaud these women for being willing to share and expose themselves, warts and all, good and bad, this is me, take it or leave it. Another book I recently re...

    4.8This was an insightful memoir summed up with one of Melton's quotes: "But the paradox of pain is that it is only universal in retrospect. In the present, it is fiercely personal."See, she was an addict, a bulimic, and a lonely lonely girl turned teen turned twenty something and prob...

    I have to admit...I'd previously read a few of Melton's blog posts and deemed her style "not for me." Too religious? Too "dramatic" (whatever that means)? I'm not sure. I did not read her first book but picked up this on friend's recommendation and, frankly, because I couldn't believe ...
