Publisher's Summary

The Newest Oprah Book Club 2016 Selection
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, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.
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.

Starts out great but takes a sharp right hand turn

Would you try another book from Glennon Doyle Melton and/or Glennon Doyle Melton?

No, probably not

Would you recommend Love Warrior (Oprah's Book Club: A Memoir) to your friends? Why or why not?

I would not...it starts out great and it is an interesting story and read well but turns into what feels like one long mommy blog entry. When the character starts seeing the therapist is when it lost me...the language, the story seemed contrived and super super religious.

What three words best describe Glennon Doyle Melton’s performance?

theatrical, religious, predictable

Did Love Warrior (Oprah's Book Club: A Memoir) inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to look more into an author when i am reading a memoir

Any additional comments?

I was not familiar with Melton's blog or background...if i knew that religion of the traditional sort was so prevelant in her writing, i wouldnt have listened. I get it...you love god. Some of the story was completey unbelievable, i.e. the long rant on explaining "sexy" to her small children.....there is no way to small girls sat and listened to a long explanation of what sexy meant. Unrealistic and the phrase " on the bathroom floor" was way overused. I bought this book because Elizabeth Gilbert endorsed it.....Melton has definately read Eat Pray Love....way to much of the same verbage.
