PROJECT: HAPPILY EVER AFTER
Saving Your Marriage When the Fairytale Falters
In Project: Happily Ever After Alisa Bowman bravely tells the story of how she went from wishing her husband dead to renewing her wedding vows. Her four-month project was a last ditch effort to save a marriage that many—her friends, her colleagues and even her own mother—had written off as hopeless. It’s a fearlessly honest account of all of the topics that unhappily married people and the counselors who try to help them are too scared and guilt-ridden to discuss. Equal parts funny, poignant, and helpful, the book offers other divorce daydreamers courage and hope—as well as a 10-step plan they can follow to start their own marriage projects at home.
In the first marital improvement book written from the perspective of a recovering divorce daydreamer, it tells an inspiring story coupled with straightforward, prescriptive guidance. Readers will laugh, cry, and, for once, feel oh so normal. And then they will save their marriages, too.
