The Divorce Diet is a novel that should be dedicated to every woman who ever walked away from a man - or a diet. It's bitingly funny and insightful, while celebrating food and self-discovery - just don't listen to it while you're hungry. It's perfect for fans of Julie and Julia and Eat, Pray, Love.
Abigail loves her baby Rosie, her husband Thad, and food. She takes great joy and comfort in concocting culinary delights to show the depth of her love and commitment to her family. Imagine her surprise when Thad announces, "this whole marriage thing... just doesn't work for me." Abigail can't believe he really means what he's said, but he does. Abigail and Rosie move back in to her parents' house, where she regresses into her adolescent self. She diets, finds work, and begins to discover the life she really wants, and a man who really wants her.
loved it. enlightening. helpful. insightful. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I listened to it and finished in 3 days. I could not stop listening.

This was pure escapism. I got a kick out the style of "daily happenings" but disliked the way she changed to longer chunks of time to tie it all up in conclusion.
