How to Heal a Broken Heart
From Rock Bottom to Reinvention (via ugly crying on the bathroom floor)
'The poster girl for divorce.' The Times
'If you've ever had your heart broken (and who hasn't) Rosie Green's How to Heal a Broken Heart is your best friend. Honest, comforting and hopeful.' MARIAN KEYES
'I love Rosie Green's writing.' ELIZABETH DAY
'Brilliant. One of the few books that I've found that really describes what a broken heart feels like. It touched so many nerves.' VANESSA FELTZ
'It reduced me to tears.' EMMA BARNETT, Woman's Hour, BBC Radio 4
'It wasn't a conscious uncoupling. I had my heart ripped out and stamped on.'
When Rosie Green's husband walked out after 26 years together, he declined to leave a forwarding address. Instead, he left a devastated woman who turned into someone she barely recognised: unable to eat or sleep, and so desperate to keep her family together she'd sacrifice her sense of self - and her dignity.
She thought she'd never get over it. But she did. And so can you.
This is the frank, uplifting and insightful book Rosie wished she could have found when her whole world fell apart.
Here's your guide to getting through it - with advice from the experts, with the help of your friends, with a deliciously dark sense of humour and, for Rosie, with some highly inappropriate sex advice from her pre-teen daughter. Let her brilliantly honest handbook show how you can heal faster, understand yourself better and move on.
How to Heal a Broken Heart doesn't sugarcoat it - heartbreak brings you to your knees. But, sometimes, it also gives you a necessary shove towards a happier, more fulfilled life than you ever dreamed was possible.
I wish I’d read this a year ago but regardless, it’s so well written and timely of where I am now. I feel uplifted from Rosie’s words and have so much respect for her and how she has coped.
Just what I needed. Although my separation story is completely different, the emotions are the same. Reading Rosie’s path out of her darkest times gives me a roadmap out of mine and a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for your brutal honesty Rosie. x
