    REVIEW QUOTES

-A testament to the power of vulnerability. Glennon shows us the clearest meaning of 'To thine own self be true.' It's as if she reached into her heart, captured the raw emotions there, and translated them into words that anyone who's ever known pain or shame--in other words, every human on the planet--can relate to. She's bravely put everything on the table for the whole world to see.- -- Oprah Winfrey (Oprah's Book Club 2016 selection)

-Love Warrior reaches a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Glennon's story about the resurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring--with outrageous courage--to trust each other) is something beyond merely inspirational; it is epic. I think of this book as the vital, long-overdue, much-needed sister memoir to Eat Pray Love. Glennon lifts the roof off her whole house--her whole life--and examines everything, right out in the open. She has, indeed, become a Love Warrior. This book is an act of love and truth and generosity; it will change lives.- -- Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love

-Melton is not merelyrelaying a narrative; she is offering her story with the hope and purpose ofconnection. Love Warrior ...draws you in close, as if the author is talking toyou, and only to you. Listening to such a warm and emotionally intelligentauthor is a worthy investment in a course on difficult conversations. This bookhas real wisdom... what will win you over is all the 'terrible magic' thathappens when things fall apart.- --New York Times Book Review

-A book with so muchpainful truth packed into its pages that every person who's ever married orplans to marry should really give it a read.- --Chicago Tribune -An incredible, dark, poignant, vulnerable personal account about surviving rock bottom and finding abetter life. You will be inspired by [Glennon's] resilience, strength, andwomanhood.- --Real Simple -Glennon Doyle Meltonhas mastered sharing her emotional life with the world, which she does nearlydaily on momastery.com. Now she lays herself bare once again in Love Warrior, chronicling her struggles and the depths of her resilience in the darkest oftimes. A heroic achievement.- -- Family Circle

-Love Warrior reachesa depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in theworld, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Glennon's story about theresurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring?withoutrageous courage?to trust each other) is something beyond merelyinspirational; it is epic.

-This is a book aboutwhat it means to be human?to wrestle with love, hurt, addiction, vulnerability, intimacy, and grace. Love Warrior blew me away. We can all find pieces of ourown stories reflected in Glennon's powerful words. We are so lucky to have hercourage and wisdom in the world. We need this kind of truth telling if we areever going to find our way back to each other.- -- Brene Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Rising Strong and Daring Greatly

-How can I do justiceto this book? Moving and brilliant and funny and shocking and heartbreaking andinspiring, Love Warrior raises provocative questions about just what ispossible for a person, a marriage, a family, a life. At the heart of this storyis the insistence that we don't have to settle?we can explore our shadows, andwe're not just going to survive it, but we're going to come out the other sidea whole new person with new love, new hope, new strength, and maybe even a newmarriage. This is a big, stunning, buoyant, honest, raw glimpse into the lifeof an astonishing woman, but it is also a punch in the face to anyone anywherewho believes that this is just how it is and it's not going to get anybetter.- --Rob Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins -This elegant, movingmemoir is about one woman's marriage but also much more than that. Glennonwrites about a hunger for love that all of us feel and the only food thatultimately feeds us. She understands the unique relationship between spiritualand romantic love, and in finding one, she masters the other. Truly a wonderfulbook.- --Marianne Williamson, New York Times bestselling author of A Return to Love -When I finished thelast page of Love Warrior, I sobbed. I sobbed because I was in awe. Because Ididn't want it to end. Because it made me believe more deeply in love, inhumanity, in forgiveness, in God, in marriage. Glennon and Craig have invitedus so far into the messy, beautiful, difficult insides of their hearts andlives, and what we find there is profoundly inspiring. This is a book that willchange lives, change marriages, change the way we think and talk about whatlove really is.- -- Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect

-A compelling storyabout self-discovery. Candid, brave, and generous.- --Kirkus Reviews -A breathless story, beautifully told. Love Warrior presents an intense and absorbing narrativewhile reaching for something bigger and more quixotic, the mystery of intimacyitself.- --Bookpage

-This memoir isn'treally about Melton rebuilding her relationship with her husband; it's aboutMelton rebuilding her relationship with herself. It's about one woman lettinggo of the gendered messages she's been surrounded by her entire life, and communingwith her fullest, most authentic self. Utterly refreshing and... just totallybadass.- -- Bustle.com
