Never in a million years would I have guessed I’d an enjoy a memoir centered around divorce, but from the moment I picked up this book, I was completely absorbed in the author’s story. The writing in this book feels as if you have sat down for a deep conversation over lunch with a close friend. ...more
I found this memoir about being blindsided in a marriage and then subsequent divorce informative. It was an intriguing and fascinating read.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing a digital ARC for me to read and review.
Kathryn proved that one can get through a divorce with a lot of hard work, a circle of very good friends and come out the other side with a wonderful life. What a strong, determined and not mean woman.
Kathryn Taylor writes an articulate memoir of a painful divorce which was totally unexpected. She upturned her life after her future husband courted her ardently, in order to live the life he designed, and then he left suddenly. This well-written book could be a manual for how to get through this experience and find oneself again. Highly recommend for any woman going through a divorce, especially one she didn't want.
In her memoir, Two Minus One, Taylor offers a poignant and well-crafted account of what it is like to be sixty years old, believing you are happily married one day, only to discover the next, having missed all of the clues, that you’ve been abandoned. This is certainly a story that demonstrates the powerful ways in which love is blind. This is a human story, one of vulnerability, insight and resilience. Highly recommended.
What a surprising book this was. I was thoroughly engrossed in Kathryn's story and how she was just so honest and frank.
Kathryn and her husband started their relationship as neighbours, then friends and then lovers and marriage. After blending their families together and moving for husbands job, Kathryn thought things were going well. She had no knowledge how things would turn.
On a weekend away to visit Husband's dying brother, in the car he say's " I'm done with the marriage and don’t want to ...more
I am not a big book reader. This was a complimentary ARC copy and I know the author personally, so was very interested to read this memoir. I would have never guessed by knowing the author that she went thru such trials in her life. She is truly an inspiration. the book was hard to put down; couldn't wait to see her next conquest! The book will give you a new outlook on life and you will realize that "the grass is not always greener on the other side".
First, let me say that I love this cover!
Two Minus One is a petite memoir about Kathy's "grey divorce". Kathy had been a single Mom and met her new husband before he decided to divorce his first wife. Kathy's second husband asked for a divorce out of the blue and this memoir is about the difficulties of moving past this abrupt ending to their marriage.
At first, I wasn't sure that I could relate to Kathy's divorce because the difference in her age and my age, but in the end I felt like anyone tha ...more
