Book review – The Starter Marriage

on September 4, 2010

The Starter Marriage by Kate Harrison is a delightful read!

This novel is all about divorce, friendship and starting over. Pain in bucket loads and emotional upheaval but all intermixed with learning how to get over a divorce and starting over.

The name of the book comes from the ‘divorce group’ which explains that sometimes one’s first marriage is not neccesarily for life and that it is like a starter house.  I know that sounds a bit crude, but in the book it makes sense.

There is a group who for their various reasons go to the ‘divorce recovery group’ and it charts their journey from hurting to healing.

I really enjoyed this book, it was an easy to read book, which I didn’t really want to put down and the ending was happy but not overly sugar coated:-)
