Publisher's Summary

An Oprah Bookclub 2016 Selection

The highly anticipated memoir by best-selling author Glennon Doyle Melton, Love Warrior 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 best seller 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 13 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.

There’s someone else like me

This story had me from the first few words. I couldn’t tear myself away from it, even when I was away from it. Glennon’s words floated in my mind through out the day. I thought about them, felt them, and rolled them around in my head until I was able to hear them again. I’m not sure how many times I thought to myself, there’s someone else out there that feels this way too. I felt understood, even though I was the one trying to understand. I highly recommend this audio book to anyone wanting to feel a little, and open themselves up to possibilities.

unpopular opinion: just okay

perhaps if you've struggled with the throes of addiction in the past this book might speak to you. or maybe if you've been in a marriage where your partner was unfaithful.
overall, there were times where I loved this book but most of the time I didn't. it seemed that the main character didn't take any responsibility for her part in the unraveling of her marriage.
I know that being unfaithful is never acceptable when you're in a marriage, but you do have to look inward sometimes and wonder if maybe your actions did something to contribute.
anyway, long story long, I found this book just okay.

It was if she spoke from my heart, body and soul

Such an amazing book. Having watched a ted talk Glennon did I was interested to read her books but did not know I would feel so many of the topics that she touched on. Thank you for such an amazing piece of work Glennon!!!

At first I wasn't sure about it...it was so RAW in ways but I kept at it and ended up feeling really inspired that she transformed her life so fully! Yay Glennon!

worth hearing

Struggled to start it, found the narrating voice challenging to listen to.
The content was captivating and complex so relatable to many different readers.
I'm reading it for book club, wouldn't have chosen it otherwise but after finishing would be willing to hear or read more of her work.

Listen to Love Warrior!

This was such an engaging book; I listened to it in about 3 days - much faster than I usually listen to audio books. I couldn't stop listening! To be honest, I had heard quite a bit about this book and was expecting it to be a bit fluffy, but it blew my expectations out of the water! It's so insightful, and Glennon's authenticity and self reflection are wonderful. I'm so glad it was read by Glennon herself; it really made the book come to life. I recommend listening to this book. It is honestly inspiring and fascinating. Go, Glennon! You are brave, strong and beautiful! I love what you're doing. #LoveWarrior #WeCanDoHardThings #Audible1

love Warrior

This book was really written differently from the woods which I read. At first when getting into the book I wondered why or would I choose to complete this book as I am confused to the association of the material to the name of the book. If you are reading this book persevere through the beginning, and part middle to completing the book as the third part of the book, brings it all home. You get a full understanding of the value of the book, especially in the end, which makes it a welll worth book to read.
